Cusp

Refers to the pointed portion of a tooth. If a tooth cracks at the cusp and is left untreated, the tooth may break off entirely. Normally, patients with cracked tooth cusps will experience pain because the fractures are deep enough to affect the roots. If a tooth's crack is long enough, a dentist will usually choose to cover the tooth with a crown to prevent breakage.
