When the outer hard tissues of a tooth are fractured or cracked, chewing can cause movement of the pieces and the pulp becomes irritated. Often this results in a momentary, sharp pain
which eventually progresses to include thermal sensitivity.If you experience symptoms of a fractured or cracked tooth, see your dentist
immediately. If detected early, a cracked/fractured tooth can often be more likely to be maintained.By the time you visit your dentist,Don't chew on hard objects such as ice, unpopped popcorn kernels or pens.Don't clench or grind your teeth.
