    Introduction: A cracked tooth or a craze lines are most common outcome of trauma and mostly are neglected as they are asymptotic. Diagnosis at an early stage is required, because at later stages, it may become symptomatic to the patient. After it becomes symptomatic, they reach a situation where they need to undergo an root canal therapy (RCT) or may sometimes need to go in for an extraction. Materials and Methods: The study focuses on visualization of the tooth with cracks or craze lines clinically, using an endodontic tool such as loupes. Results: More number of crack lines are visible when visualized under the loupes. Estimating the crack lines clinically is not a good diagnostic criteria as most of the crack lines would not be visible to the naked eye unless viewed under the dental loupes. Conclusion: The inability to visualize the extent of the crack through clinical examination alone is one aspect that leads to the complexity of accurately determining an endodontic diagnosis. Early diagnosis can prevent the RCT or extraction of the tooth. Misinterpretation can lead to several problems. The patient might have to undergo RCT, and in severe cases, it might lead to extraction of the tooth.
