I had a dental problem when my first molar broke some months ago and after some decay and pain I am undergoing a dental treatment. The doctor was performing a root canal and kept on talking about calcified stones being formed and looking for a 'tak' sound inspite of having x-rays. Doctor did not point to the calcified stones earlier and suddenly came out with this new issue. In the mean time when looking for stones doctor actually managed to break my tooth and has blamed grinding and clenching for a crack that caused the tooth to break.
I am shocked that neither the calcified stone nor the crack showed up in x-ray and the preliminary examination. With current technology, can the cracks in tooth and calcified stones not be detected.
