A patient presented with severe pain in the area of teeth #2 and #31. Prior to seeking dental care, the pain had been so severe together with other clinical manifestations that the patient sought medical attention for a heart attack. After elimination of the occurrence of a m.i., the pain was thought to be dental in origin and dental care was sought. No carious lesions or endodontic problems were found upon radiographic examination. However, careful oral examination revealed the presence of a crack transcending tooth #31. Following tooth extraction and immediate implant placement, no further pain was experienced by the patient.
