Cracked tooth syndrome (CTS) can be a perplexing disorder to diagnose and manage. Many practitioners wonder whether the latest dental materials and adhesives can or should be used when restoring these teeth. The authors reviewed the literature and developed recommendations for how to diagnose and manage CTS and prevent it in susceptible teeth. As the population continues to age and people retain their teeth longer, it is anticipated that patients will present even more frequently with symptoms of CTS.
