    Hello

    One of my front teeth cracked 3 years back and I have a crown there. Recently I have felt a very slight dull pain that sometimes comes and goes. There is no serious pain, or sensitivity and the gums seem fine. I am biting normally and the crown is not loose. Whilst there might not be much to suggest an infection, is it still possible that an infection might be there, perhaps in its early stages?

    Thanks
    D

    Only way is to go to a dentist to have it examined and tested.
