My tooth crown hurts

Common Questions and Answers about My tooth crown hurts


Avatar n tn I went like that for a month and went back got adjusted - it was alot better but I am still favoring the right side - especially with difficult food - apple peels nuts etc. Some times I am not sure if the tooth below the crown is bothering me? My dentists said the nerves are irritated and need to calm/settle down which takes a little time? I did call him to say its still not quite right. I am nervous about if I might need a root canal or do they ever redo a crown.
Avatar f tn If I make a sucktion action with my mouth, that is when my tooth hurts, I guess it is my cheek pressing on the tooth. When I push it with my finger it hurts. My dentist said, IT CAN'T HURT, you had a root canal. He sent me back to endo, endo said she doesn't find anything wrong with it. The xray showed a large gray spot on the tooth, she said that was probably just the material the crown was made from. Neither one wants to see me again, said that they can't find anything wrong.
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? Is the tooth still ok?
Avatar f tn I had a crown fitted on the third tooth from the back lower left jaw, I complained to my dentist about the size (too large), pain if tapping on it or chewing on it, scratching the tongue if trying to pass around it, she was nice enough to remove it, x-ray the tooth, proved that the root was gone and all is clean, had a second crown, removed immediately due to another large size, placed a temporary for three weeks, was just fine, now the third crown is fitted five days ago and the size is fine, b
Avatar f tn I have had a couple of crowns on the upper left side in the back that have broke on the inner side of my mouth. There is a hole where the piece of crown was that hurts at random, if I stick my tongue in it to remove food. The pain feels like I stuck a piece of tinfoil in it! Also, just recently, out of nowhere, the very back of my upper left side,where the crowns are partially broken, I got some serious radiating pain. Took some ibuprofen,seems to have calmed the pain.
Avatar f tn I had a crown put on my tooth about 2 days ago, it hurts anytime i bite down to hard. Is that normal?
Avatar n tn Upon a return visit, he resized the shape of the filling and the pain was even worse. He then said that my tooth was fractured in three places and would need a crown. He shaved the tooth down, said he thinks he filed down all three of the fractured areas and fitted me with a temporary crown. He said if that didn't help, I would need root canal. I am still having pain when biting down (although not as severe as it once was).
Avatar f tn I have had this tooth that I have had a root canal and a crown put on about 3 years ago. Once a year I have tooth pain for about a week and it goes away. I can't see a crack in the crown and it's not loose from the tooth but the whole crown wiggles a little.This has been going on for the last 2 years. Now I have lost my job and can't afford a lot of money on treatment. What should I do.
Avatar n tn I do have allergies year round and the sinuses around my cheek bones hurt when my allergies act up. I had a CT of my head which included my sinuses and the CT report came back clear, but an x-ray done by my allergist said they are white. I dont know whats going on since my dentist says theres nothing wrong but this tooth hurts.
Avatar n tn I had a permanent crown on my third lower molar without any root canal the tooth was cracked but at that time my dentist said no need for root canal. Almost 2 years later its suddenly sensitive and pressure pain when eating. I went to the dentist and I was told nothing was wrong with the tooth. Is it possible my bite if off since I have a bad tmj.
Avatar n tn I had a permanent crown put on six days ago. My mouth was very sore that day and the following day on the third day I could chew on that side with some hot and cold sensitivity. I went back to the dentist for some fillings on the other side of my mouth on the fourth day. I told him about my sensitivity and he told me it should be okay as long as it only lasts 45 seconds to a minute.
Avatar n tn Occlusal interference is commonly introduced after a new restoration. X-ray can not detect occlusal interference.Seeing a prosthodontist for occlusal adjustment is advised.
Avatar n tn I will see my dentist tomorrow, I am afraid for him to fill the crown now, should I wait to fix the crown? The tooth feels like it did after I had my permanent crown. Will the pain on the tooth go away? I do not have throbbing pain. Thank you! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/437982'>Root canal & crown still hurts 6 mos. later</a>.
Avatar f tn Hi, I had a crown put on my second molar 3 weeks ago. I had no symptoms in the tooth that was crowned but it had been filled quite a bit and a new cavity formed on the side of the tooth. The dentist thought a crown would be the best solution. They used a one visit procedure for the temporary. My crown was a little odd feeling for about the first 3 days, but after that it started feeling painful and had cold sensitivity.
Avatar n tn I had a rootcanal and a crown about a year ago on my top back molar. now all of a sudden its sore to bite on this tooth. it started 2 days ago. it hurts to push on it with a finger. any ideas?
Avatar f tn Yes, its possible that there's a cavity underneath the crown and its destroyed the tooth underneath it. If that's the case, the tooth may not be restorable and may need to be removed.
Avatar m tn My left lymph node seems tight/swollen when I move my head around. My crown has no sensitivity to touch, however, it still hurts a bit when chewing hard foods. I have two small bumps on the inside of my cheek, right against my back two teeth (crown and rear molar). It looks like a bite mark, but doesn't go away and hurts when it swells up. So...after all that info...would you bet I need a root canal? Could it be a treatable infection? Could I need jaw therapy?
209227 tn?1242350345 I suggest a rootcanal but my dentist said its not nessary since my tooth only hurt when I chew. So I went back for adjustment and my tooth still hurst and now my whole bite is off. I know because after dinner some of my teeth started to hurt. What seems to be the problem with my tooth. I just change my dentist due a insurance and I don't want to change again.
Avatar f tn It started with crack tooth and was told need a crown. After the crown the tooth still hurts and I was told I needed root canal and so my dentist remove the permanent crown and did the root canal and again crowned. After 4 months I still feel sensation from the tooth. I was told to wait for at least few months. It has a mild pressure pain when touching with my fingers. It does not hurt to chew but the tooth hurts after chewing hard or chewy food.
Avatar n tn I began feeling pain in a lower molar when I would bite down. After seeing my dentist, he informed me that I needed a root canal and a crown. Throughout the entire process, the tooth has never felt normal. My dentist kept telling me, "It's (old filling, temp crown, and now new crown) a little high," and then he would trim it down. The permanent crown was put on three weeks ago.
Avatar n tn It was put on my left upper incisor. I chipped the tooth basically in half about 6 weeks ago and a previous dentist made 2 attempts to bond it, but they never stayed. I never experienced any pain after the bondings, only with this temporary crown. I'm not senstive to cold or hot, and as a matter of fact cold water helps a lot!! The pain is so bad that I can barely touch the crowned tooth because it hurts so much. The dentist that put it on said he doesnt think I'll need a root canal.
Avatar n tn I noticed that after about 2 months of having the RC and crown done, that my tooth was very sensitive to hot coffee or anything hot. The Dentist said to take Tylenol or something and use a tooth paste for sensitive teeth. I did that and the pain went away about 1.5 months later. I was told that the nerve had to finish dieing and it would take about that long. I was happy that the pain left and eating was no problem or at least for about 7 months.
Avatar f tn One of the crowns is receding (I don't think the fit was right from the beginning) and needs to be replaced, the other crown needed a filling to close a gap. After the 2nd crown got the filling, my sensitivity decreased by about 95% for 6 months or so. One night at dinner, a hot soup set it off again, I went weeks with incremental throbbing in the area. The dentist and endodontist insist that the root canals have not failed and there is nothing more they can do.

Avatar n tn you could have a recurring abcess in the tooth, or the crown may be impinging on the gum tissue becasue the edges of the crown were buried too far underneath the gumline. or it may be as simple as some extra cement that needs to be removed.
Avatar n tn I told him I was allergic to gold less than 14 karate but he insisted I would be able to use this god. Well...I had pus in my gum around the tooth. After deep cleanings etc that went on for 10 months, they pull it off and made me a silver one. I told them I thought it felt high in my mouth and he insisted it was the proper height. That was yesterday.
Avatar f tn My grand daughter who is five years old had a crown placed on her lower back right molar the other day and her other teeth do not make contact now, There is a big gap between the top and bottom teeth when she closes her mouth now that was not there before. It is very easy to see that the crown is much higher and larger over all compared to the other teeth. The dentist ground the crown and the upper tooth to try to close the gap but it is still there.
Avatar n tn I said no way because I had have no pain until this perm crown was put on plus the dental assistant check my root on that tooth and said it was fine. I think the crown is not fitted properly. Can you asssit me with why I have pain. The pern crown is porcelain with metal underneath. Should I get a second opinion? Is it true that you can't have a gold crown on one tooth and a crown porcelain on another. By the way these two crown would touch when you chew.
