many people have cracked teeth and don’t know it!
These cracks may develop for various reasons including having large fillings in teeth or grinding teeth, and often cause no pain until very advanced. Occasionally though, pain on biting or some sensitivity to cold may be experienced,. If cracks are left untreated, they can deepen and lead to a tooth breaking, nerve damage and pain or root splitting, causing the tooth to be lost.
