Abstract: This article follows on from Part 1 which looked at the pathogenesis and diagnosis of cracked tooth syndrome (CTS). It combines a review of the available evidence with a discussion of established and more modern concepts of management, aiming to provide a clear, rational approach to the predictable management of CTS with the aid of case studies and a decision-tree.

Clinical relevance: Allows the clinician to manage CTS predictably.
