Dental caries: The tooth sounds like there is a cavity that caused the tooth to fracture. Dental caries can eat away at the tooth spreading quickly in the inside of tooth. This will create a shell which will break and form a crater which will trap food. It can progress breaking more of the crown and get into the nerve area which can lead to an abcess. Get go your dentist for a filling if possible. Lucky no pain.

Don't procrastinate: There are many issues with walking around with broken teeth: infection, pain, abscess, bad breath, TMJ problems, muscle under-use, muscle over-use, facial disfigurement, to name a few.
