Signs of a Cracked Tooth

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. An informative article about cracked teeth can be read at
