Abstract: 

Cracked Tooth Syndrome is a common condition. In a major percent of cases etiology is primarily the after effect of a dental procedure .The patient is often unable to identify the offending tooth or quadrant involved, and may report a history of a dental procedure with unsatisfactory results. Clinicians need to have a thorough understanding regarding this concept to mitigate the commencement of crack propagation in tooth after a restorative procedure. This article is a comprehensive literature review about the incidence, prevalence, etiology and pathogenesis of CTS from contemporarily available data.
