What is a Broken Tooth?
If you have a broken or chipped tooth, you may not feel any pain unless the tooth is broken or chipped large enough to expose the nerves that lie within the inner layer of the tooth. If a broken or chipped tooth exposes the nerves that lie inside the tooth, you may feel an increased sensitivity and pain while chewing o when the broken tooth is exposed to very cold or very hot food and beverages.
