Craze lines, which are also called cracks or fissures, are very small and usually cannot be felt with the tongue. They are typically not visible to the naked eye and do not cause any pain or discomfort. However, if you have craze lines that are causing sensitivity or discomfort, you may be able to feel them with your tongue. It’s always a good idea to see a dentist if you notice any changes in your teeth, such as cracks or chips, to make sure that there is no underlying problem that needs to be addressed. The dentist will be able to assess the situation and recommend the best course of treatment, if necessary.
