Left untreated, cracked teeth can lead to pain and discomfort and long-term problems. But a crack in a tooth is often almost invisible and undetectable. However, there are some warning signs to be aware of, including:
– Sensitivity to hot and cold food and drinks
– Pain when biting or chewing
– Unexplained discomfort around a tooth or the surrounding gum tissue
Other signs of a possible crack are “pain that tends to come and go” and swollen gums. If any of these symptoms appear they should be brought to the attention of a dentist who will carry out a thorough examination.
