Sensitive tooth under cap

Common Questions and Answers about Sensitive tooth under cap


Avatar n tn Water underneath the cap shouldn't cause sensitivity cause the tooth has no nerve and thus no sensation. My guess is that its the gums cause that's still alive and functioning normally. The temporary may be irritating the gums. A new temp may fix the problem as well.
Avatar n tn I have now developed a bump on my gum just above my root canal/capped tooth. Sensitive to touch, it throbs on occasion. It is sensitive on the outside of my face to touch at my cheekbone. Could this be an abcess? I do not know what an abcess is, but think this might be one. I am still (Dec. 12) unable to bite on the side of the tooth that was repaired. Thoughts? Thank you for your consideration and assistance.
Avatar f tn My daughter has had a cap on her lower jaw tooth since she was 4 yrs old. It has appeared to have been loose and tonight she thought she was pulling her tooth and just the stainless steel cap was pulled off. The small amount of tooth underneath is still inplace and does not appear to be loose even though she has pulled the ones corresponding to it on the opposite side. There is no pain. Will it eventually loosen up and be pulled or is this a trip to the dentist?
Avatar m tn m experiencing a burning pain in the upper part of the tooth and gums. The pain will radiate from the tooth to the entire side of my face (right front tooth and right side of my face). I can feel a very sore spot under the upper part of my lip as well as soreness right below my nose if I press on it. The pain is off and on but sleeping has become difficult. I will be seeing a dentist when my insurance kicks in (11/26) but I need to figure something out till then.
317787 tn?1473358451 Hi I had a dental implant with a healing cap placed 2 weeks ago on a lower back tooth. I have been eating on the other side, lots of soft food I have read that if the implant is in the jaw under the gum, you can begin to eat more than soft food after 10 to 12 days. If there is a healing cap you need to wait 6 weeks or longer. I also read one should stay away from sonic toothbrushes. I asked the surgeons office they told me not to worry, stope reading the internet, eat whatever I am able to.
Avatar f tn My most recent one found hair-line cracks in the tooth and has used an inlay/partial cap. This has stopped the pain when chewing, but the tooth is still very sensitive to cold (not to hot). I feel a constant background discomfort in the tooth (nothing that requires painkillers). However, my sinus problem/post-nasal drip has got worse - I use sinus rinses constantly, but nothing stops the drainage, and I have to cough it up constantly during the day (which triggers my asthma).
645390 tn?1338555377 ( my dentist said a tooth cant crack under a crown...I disagree, and think (and hope) that might be the problem here. Anyway, I will call soon, and see what if anything can be done. The pain is not the worst I have had of course, but I dont like it either. When it affects my sleep it leaves me on the grouchy side..
Avatar n tn could be that the graft procedure resultd in exposed tooth structure of the crowned tooth, making it sensitive. if you are not happy with the opinions you are getting from the possibly prejudiced (they did the work) dentists who treated you, i'd advise an idependant second and maybe third opinion, perhaps from a well referred periodontist or endodntist.
Avatar n tn I had a tooth that was not aligned, rotated, and projecting more toward the inside of my mouth. i asked my dentist for options and he said the quickest and cheapest option would be a cosmetic crown. so i got my tooth shaved down to the root and a temporary put it until my custom could be made. this was fine and the temporary gave me no pain or trouble for weeks. Then i went back to get the crown put on.
Avatar n tn s root split in two pieces and a post was inserted into the tooth prior to a cap, it was determined that I had a 50 / 50% chance of saving the tooth. I had the tooth extracted (was planning on an implant). Donor bone was used to fill the hole. It is now 5 days later and I am still having pain. Could the pain be attributed to the infection / abcess or the donor bone? What else could be causing the pain?
Avatar m tn Why would it be short, they made a mold of the old tooth to make a mold for the crown, then they ground the tooth down to the root of the old tooth, and put a temp cap from the mold of the original tooth. My main concern is the grinding off the good top wisdom tooth, the enamel that was taken off and not treated afterward. Or are the commercials on TV for teeth care just conning everyone about enamel ware from acidy foods, and stiff brushes.
Avatar n tn It may also result from trauma to the tooth, such as broken down tooth or flaked tooth. Openings in the tooth enamel allow bacteria to infect the center of the tooth (the pulp). Tooth infection may increase out from the root of the tooth and to the bones supporting the tooth. A tooth infection is usually originated by a dead tooth. Everything inside the dead tooth breaks down and liquefies and there is nothing to fight bacterial growth.
Avatar f tn onl pays for 2 cleanings per year and what ever else is neccesary so i think he makes things up my tooth he wanted to cap has never hurt little discolored but it has been for 22 yrs. What do you think, this dentist scamming people and insurance companies?
Avatar f tn Hi, There is no chance that the broken tooth may make the nerve pain last longer but the tooth itself may get infected and cause pain and swelling at the affected area adding to your pain . Please consult a dentist to either treat the tooth or remove it if it is broken badly . Take care !
Avatar f tn Our five year old son still has a patch of what is commonly known as cradle cap on infants. For years we have used an over the counter cradle cap remedy, baby oil, and/or moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. We have picked it off and gotten rid of it and then it comes right back. It is not noticeable under his hair and it doesn't bother him. He does not scratch at it or notice it at all. Having large flakes in his hair is really just a nuisance.
Avatar n tn I would definitely check out the tooth that is sensitive to touch for possible root canal therapy.
Avatar m tn You need to ask the dentist this question. A gold cap is very thin, so the dentist may not be able to reuse it. It also depends on where he needs to drill to repair the tooth. Personally, I couldn't wait to get rid of my god cap. I have a lovely Cerec cap that matches the colour or the rest of my teeth.
Avatar m tn What is recommendation for the filling . Should i go for same type of filling or go for something else .
703897 tn?1248019974 Like they really care about the patient. This cap is huge, not contoured right like you stated. This cap fell further down into my gums when I ate something again and today at this point it is not jabbing the skin of the gums anymore, it is a little sore, but not irritating them. Why didn't the dentist not know he set the cap too high or something? I cannot understand how a dentist can put a patient's cap on and not know it is not right by what the patient is describing.
Avatar n tn I have severe sensitive teeth - my teeth look fantastic under x ray but the outside of the teeth under the gums burns and stings all the time and sometimes electric shocks if I eat sugar or drink tea - I can't talk or eat properly - opening my mouth and air causes pain.
1058622 tn?1254346187 When I was younger, about 3 yeras ago, the filling of a tooth fell out, causing a horrible cavity. The tooth began to fall out, piece by piece, and was painful at times, but I ignored it. Now, after it happened to another tooth almost directly across my bottom jaw, the first tooth has begun to hurt to the point that I can not eat on that side. Today, I noticed a small swollen lump directly under the first rotten tooth. I haven't had dental insurance, and just applied when the pain began.
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.
697381 tn?1228011309 However, when I visited my dentist about this (one month ago), I had some additional dental work that needed to be done, so before she did the mold for the temp crown, she wanted to drill the cavity out of tooth 4 and the nerve became exposed, so she put a temp crown on that tooth then I had a root canal done on tooth one week ago. I had no pain with this particular root canal. I also had a cavity in tooth 2, so she filled that one.
Avatar f tn i am layed off with no inc.i had a ear infection then i had the muckis cold now i have a tooth hearting in the post the cap is broken .now my check is swelling i have fever and now i starting to throw up food .not sure where to get help without inc.
Avatar n tn I personally dont feel the doctor is responsible as the tooth already was damaged by decay prior to your visit. If the tooth did not have a filling already, i think that would be a different story and he might fix it for free. Its like a machanic replacing your car radiator and accidently touch a hose that was cracked and it broke in half. If there is already prior damage the doctor would not be responsible.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had my tooth extracted in october 2008 and another teeth filled up for cavity.. After that I started to have sensitive tooth and that sensitiveness spreads to the body. When I feel that tooth sensitivity my whole body also feels sensitive and it takes a few minutes for my body to get adjusted to that sensitivity.. sometimes when i think about the feeling i feel sensivite. Now it is becoming a everyday problem. But no pain in the teeth.. will this sensitiveness go away..
