A cracked tooth, whether it occurs through normal wear and tear over time, or as the result of an injury, can be quite painful. The discomfort may arrive suddenly when that tooth comes in contact with hot or cold temperatures, or come intermittently while chewing. The sooner you receive treatment, the better the chances are that the tooth can be saved, which is why it is of the utmost importance to see an endodontist without delay.
