Two Prosthodontist Treatment Options for a Severely Cracked First Premolar
The first premolar teeth are located two spots in front of the first proper molar. First premolars, also called first bicuspids, play a grinding role in chewing. Incisors grab the food, after which canines start to tear the food and then pass it to the first premolar, which then starts the grinding process the rear molars finish before you swallow. A severely cracked first premolar can cause you pain when chewing, bite issues, and self-esteem issues, since the tooth is often visible when you smile or open your mouth wide.
