Most people know when they have a cracked tooth. It may be noticeable when you smile or you can feel the crack with your tongue. It also may begin to cause pain, especially when you apply pressure when chewing. You may also notice the tooth is sensitive to heat or cold. But some cracks can go unnoticed. They can be in an unexposed area and may not cause any discomfort. This is another good reason to adhere to a regular exam schedule to catch these cracks when they are small, before they start causing pain or other dental issues.
