If your tooth cracks, you may experience a variety of symptoms such as erratic pain when you chew on your food and sudden pain when your tooth is exposed to extreme temperatures. In many case, the pain will be intermittent. Over time, the pulp will become damaged and the symptoms will become worse and more constant. An untreated Lisle cracked tooth can lead to an infection of the pulp tissue.
