In brief: See an endodontist

Oral infections such as certain chronic abscess or cracked, fractured teeth can often be difficult to diagnose and treat.
In addition to dental school, endodontists receive 2-3 more years of advanced education in this kind of diagnosis and treatment. That’s why you should see an endodontist for proper diagnosis and prognosis before the treatment.
