OBJECTIVE: This session explains the pathology within enamel and dentin and also focuses on the clinical consequences of crack development in dental tissue. As cracks have both biologic and mechanical implications, a complete review of the literature on the subject has enabled the development of a comprehensive diagnostic approach to identify cracked teeth and optimize their management. The elements of diagnosis are the bite test, transillumination, the pulp sensitivity test, the periodontal test, radiologic examinations, removal of existing restorations, and the use of quantitative light-induced fluorescence. Finally, the management of biologic and mechanical imperatives relating to the treatment of cracked teeth has allowed the proposal of a reliable and reproducible therapeutic strategy based on two pillars: the arrest of bacterial infiltration using immediate dentin sealing, and the limitation of crack propagation using relative cuspal coverage.
