Common Questions and Answers about Does a tooth crown hurt


Avatar n tn does the tooth have a root canal? it might need one. you havent described when it hurts. sometimes there are problems if the tooth is cracked or there is a root fracture which can make your tooth hurt with pressure. the crown usually can help the cracked tooth. root fractures are unrepairable.
6529153 tn?1415278338 The dentist said the tooth looked fine on the x-ray and all it needed was a crown. Easy peasy he said. So, they did their thing and put a temporary crown on. It's been 7 days and it's been hurting ever since, much worse than the cracked tooth did. It has lessened somewhat, but eating on that side is impossible. It hurts my gums to floss around it, but brushing is OK. I don't feel any "zings", it's just an ache whenever I bite down on anything.
Avatar n tn I had a root canal nine months ago on my upper left molar (#16), about 19 months after my then-dentist nicked the root of the tooth during a filling. A permanent crown was placed six weeks after the root canal. Since the crown was put on, I have sometimes had very short, infrequent episodes of mild pain in the tooth when biting, typically caused by food getting trapped by the tooth, that always resolve themselves.
Avatar f tn I have searched the archives, and apparently it is very common to have discomfort after a root canal, but how long should that last before I suspect a problem? I had a root canal one week ago and I still have a throbbing pain in that tooth. It is not unbearable, but I am concerned. I'm supposed to have the permanent crown put on soon and I don't want to do that step if something is still wrong. Should I still be hurting?
Avatar n tn I had a tooth that needed a crown for several years. I finally went in to get it prepared for the crown and found myself in extreme discomfort. I waited about a week and my dentist decided he wanted to do a root canal before placing the crown on. The tooth did feel some discomfort after getting the second part of the root canal. I guess it is where they fill the canal that the nerve was in. Could they have done something wrong with this process?
Avatar n tn It may be that the crown does not fit properly or that the bite is off. Did the tooth hurt immediately after the crown was placed (even in the temporary crown) or did it take a while? Sometimes it does take a while for a root canal to be necessary. Is there any radiographic evidence of infection at the apex(tip) of the tooth. If it is not the bite or fit of the crown, it sounds like a root canal would be the way to go. Good Luck.
Avatar n tn I have called the dentist many times wanting to know when the crown will be delivered and have been told that it is taking so long because they want to make sure the color is just right (it is a front tooth).
Avatar n tn About 5 weeks ago, I had a root canal done on tooth 12 by an endodontist. Everything was fine during and after the procedure. 2 weeks later, I received my temporary crown, it was sore the first day, but I was able to eat normally afterwards, it just felt different, which is probably normal. Now, 3 days ago,I received my porcelain crown. It has felt horrible ever since receiving it.
Avatar m tn Hi, Maybe you should have the crown adjusted a little more,if the crown is just a little high that could be making it hurt,usually when a tooth needs more adjusting -it hurts when you bite down.When a tooth is cracked you have intermittant pain-not nessessarily when biting down.Hope this helps and good luck-you could always get a second opinion.
Avatar m tn My top back molar broke. My dentist drilled it for a crown and put a temporary crown on it. About two days later I developed a pain in both my upper and lower jaws..mind you..this tooth does not hurt it just hurts all around it. Alleve takes the pain away. Went back two weeks later to get the permanent put on and now he won't put it on until I see an endodontist to make sure I don't need a root canal. Really..
530183 tn?1213083679 The tooth is a bottom molar that already had a crown on it from years ago. My ordinary dentist had already performed a root canal on the tooth in April 2008, going straight through the top of the crown to preserve it. The tooth did not settle and still had nerve pain pulsating through it every so often so I was sent to one of the best endodontists in the city.
Avatar f tn I am a habitual night grinder. I recently was grinding my teeth and the next day I noticed I had a broken back tooth. I went to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned and I asked the hygentist what she thought the dentist might do about it. She told me that since the chip wasn't bad that the dentist will probably just refill it. The dentist came in (my dentist's husband) and checked out the xrays and assured me that I would only need to get the tooth refilled.
Avatar n tn different cements, blowing air on the tooth, pressing a permanent crown on a tooth, dilling on a tooth, even picking off temporary cement all inflame the nerve (pulp). Inflammation can be reversible or irreversible. In your case, My plan would be to wait a few more weeks. If there is no improvement, I would remove your crown (I would cut it off if i had to) and make you a new temp and then a new crown that I would cement with a cement that has a sedative mixed into it.
209227 tn?1242346745 Is it normal for a permanent crown that was just put on to hurt? The temporay crown did not hurt my toothat all. Does the pain go away with the permanent crown on?
Avatar f tn I had a temporary crown placed 3 days ago and it hurts. It is my 3rd crown and the other 2 were root canalled and they never hurt so I am not sure if this is normal. I can tell that the temp crown isn't making contact with my gum because it's too short on that side and that's where my tooth hurts. It hurts super bad to brush and I don't trust it (because I don't want it to come loose) so I have never eaten on it. Should I call the dentist and have them fix the temp crown?
Avatar n tn The other day I noticed that on the inner part, near the right side of the roof of my mouth, there was a slight, hard bump slightly above my crown (right molar). It is about an inch from the crown, so more towards the roof. The crown would hurt slightly when I chewed, but it was nothing unbearable, so I did not think much of it. I can feel it with my tongue most of the time.
Avatar m tn My Dentist told me to first brush with sensitivity toothpaste then flouride rinse, then pusn extra toothpaste around the tooth at the gumline. I have been doing it for about 3 weeks, and all this did not help. I still get frequent pain, not only with cold, but sometimes out of the clear blue sky when I am sitting at my desk. I had absolutely zero pain during the 2 weeks that I wore the temporary. This is really frustrating and stresses me out.
Avatar n tn The silver filing takes up the whole area. I was told that I need a crown and that a gold crown need the least amount of tooth material to be removed. I now am not sure my dentist has the skills to do this work without making my tooth a spike (too much material removed) and covering it up with a gold crown. Should I be concerned? Are some dentists more skilled then others in the area of removing just the correct omunt of tooth material to fit a crown? Am I being to picky?
Avatar f tn I recently had a dental crown fitted. The dentist has made a long dental crown, over Tooth 16, extending to Tooth 14 so that the gap left by Tooth 15 is covered by the crown. It is a procelain on metal crown. I am not comfortable with the crown, there is a very tiny gap, near the gum on the inside/back part of the crown, where food gets stuck and I have to use my tongue to remove it or use a tooth pick.
Avatar n tn No, this tooth does not have a root canal... unfortunately. That is one thing I have learned the hard way. I now always get root canals with a crown, no matter how well they are done, they always seem to hurt sooner or later if I dont't get a root canal. Thanks, I am going in tomorrow, looks like they will be cutting it off.
Avatar n tn I had a tooth with a large filling it. A large portion of the tooth chipped off. As expected, I needed a crown. So the doctor drilled the tooth away and say there was a cavity underneath the filling, and so he said he had to go very close to the nerve. I have no sensitivity to hot/cold, but I can "feel" the tooth biting down on it. Not sure if that makes sense. It doesn't necessarily hurt, I just feel pressure on that tooth/temporary crown much more.
Avatar n tn the muscle issue should resolve w massage/heat packs etc-- like any other muscle spasm. the tooth may have a pulpitis--which is an inflamed nerve from the crown being high. it is usually reversible and should be ok. if not, the tooth may need root canal treatment, but i would not make this decision quickly. unkless the pain is severe, i'd give it weeks if not months to calm down. swelling, fever, spontaneous throbbing pain are signs that you may need root canal treatment.
Avatar m tn If you are hitting on your temporary crown first before your other teeth, then that could cause your tooth to hurt and feel more bruised. It does take a little while for your tooth to recover from a root canal---depending how bad the infection was, etc. It may just take some time for all to heal.
Avatar f tn I just had a crown placed on a fractured tooth with mild decay.. The temp. crown became very sensitive and now the new crown is hurting..When the crown was placed on it I about jumped out of chair from the pain..They said it should go away but right now it is still hurting.. My friend said that I may need a root canal.. In which I wont have have, LOL..Dentist not my best friend... Has any had this problem and does it go away?
Avatar n tn It sounds like the crown is giving you the problem, not the tooth itself. So therefore, a root canal may or may not help. Unfortunately if the pain is coming from the tooth, the irritant is still present but the nerve is remove so no pain signal will be sent. But if the pain is coming from the gums, then a root canal will have no effect. I would try a new crown again.
Avatar f tn Reading this a second time it sounds more like a fractured tooth. Was there any thought about placing a temporary crown and see if there is any improvement.
Avatar m tn They can go through the back of the crown the same as if it were a regular tooth, I think. The hole in the crown is then filled in with regular white filling material. Does your tooth react to heat? Most of the time cold sensitivity will reduce in nature as the tooth itself settles down and dentists don't do much with cold unless it becomes unbearable. Does the tooth react to gentle tapping?
5875644 tn?1375886365 About a week ago I developed a slight tooth ache on the lower left. It is a tooth that is broken, but since I had root canal done on it several years ago, there's no nerve in it. Then, a few days later I started to develop an ear ache in the same area. So now it hurts from my left ear down into my left jaw as well as a slight feeling of pressure above my left eye. I also can feel like post-nasal drip when it does hurt.
Avatar n tn if i get a veneer could it still develop and what would need to be done at that point? i will not get a crown on a tooth that is perfectly good, it is too radical a reaction to something that simply looks ugly but works properly and doesnt hurt. i live in india but will be going to america to visit my son. i dont think i could afford even a consultation with an endodontist in the usa. any other ideas for me?
