James  Beard Award-winning chef Ashley Christensen has her own downtown  Raleigh empire, which includes coffee shop Joule and upscale chicken  joint Beasley's. But her best-known restaurant is Poole's Downtown Diner, which serves fresh takes on classic American comfort food using ingredients from North Carolina farms and producers.

How Your Cosmetic Dentist Can Help With Cracked Tooth Syndrome

What exactly is cracked tooth syndrome and what are the signs and symptoms of it? What causes cracked tooth syndrome and how can you prevent it? How is it treated? Find out the answer to these questions below.

What Cracked Tooth Syndrome Is

The definition of cracked tooth syndrome is when there is a crack in the tooth that doesn't show up on x-rays due to being too small. The crack may also be located under the gum, and it can be very difficult to identify it. Cracked tooth syndrome mostly affects molars, so if you do end up having it, the chances are it will be on your molars.

Signs & Symptoms

There are a number of signs and symptoms you should keep an eye out for, and one of them is pain when you bite food. You might experience discomfort when you eat too. Pain or discomfort could also be experienced when you are exposed to temperatures that are either cold or hot.

Also, when you have a cavity, the pain is usually constant. This isn't the case with cracked tooth syndrome, so expect pain and discomfort to come and go if you have it. Do keep in mind that some people experience no pain at all, but they may still have cracked tooth syndrome.
