select + order by + limit 0,1

A big table, with a datetime field "created". I want to know the first record after a given date.

The current query is very slow ("created" has an index):

select * from table where created > '2007-04-01 10:10:10' order by created limit 0,1

Is there a faster way to select the first record after '2007-04-01 10:10:10'?

Thank you very much for your help
