One of the main symptoms of a cracked tooth is pain when chewing. Over-the-counter pain medications can help. However, don't try to manage the symptoms of a cracked tooth on your own. Talk to your dentist if you are having pain when chewing or are more sensitive to hot or cold foods or drinks. This pain or sensitivity can mean you have a small crack in your tooth. A small crack can lead to a larger dental issue, because if a tooth is damaged it can continue to crack or break. Your dentist can make treatment recommendations to fix a cracked tooth to eliminate your symptoms.
