If the Dentist says the tooth cracked because of grinding and not because of the filling he put in 2 weeks ago is this correct?

it is most likely the tooth had a small crack in it anyway. the tooth was alittle"high"from the new filling and the extra pressure from biting on it, cracked the tooth. usually after a new filling, you should go back to have the filling polished which strengthens the filling and adjusts the bite.

The best thing you can do is to go and see your dentist. Otherwise, depending on how it is cracked, it could become infected. You can also take some over the counter pain medication so that you feel better until you can see your dentist.

I had the same problem recently with an upper molar and I went to the dentist. I had to have it pulled. I recommend going to the dentist as soon as possible. I was fine with the cracked tooth for a while but later I got extreme nerve pain. I recommend going to the dentist to have him see if it can be saved, or if they have to pull it as soon as possible. Hope everything works out for you :-)

You can go to the dentist and have them fill in the crack or file the crack down.

Cracked pepper is made from peppercorns which have been broken apart or "cracked," but are still relatively large. Ground pepper is made from breaking down or "grinding" peppercorns further, such that the particles are made finer.
