What I don't understand is, if this is expected pain after crown
work, why didn't I have this problem after the first crown
attempt? Was the tooth
filed too close to the nerve? I am frustrated with the diagnosis that I need to be a tough guy regarding the pain -- particularly when the pain is so intense that it wakes me up at night, has me doubling over in pain with a glass of cold milk, and is so sensitive that I don't dare eat anything sturdier than baby food.
