GONZALEZ-GONZALEZ, JM. Chronic atypical odontalgia due to a minor fissure in the tooth crown, not visible in a radiograph. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.6, pp.271-274. ISSN 2340-3152.

In many cases chronic atypical odontalgia make patients visit several different specialists' surgeries, being unable to find the reason or the suitable treatment for the pain. We present three clinical cases in which a fissure in the tooth crown is proved to be the cause of the chronic atypical odontalgia. We think that when this fissure deepens it can affect dentin or pulp and thus not only cause this atypical pain for years but also result in tooth fracture in more than one case. We propose an early diagnosis of this type of etiology, the performance of an endodontic treatment and the placement of a protective metal-porcelain cap.
