Sensitive tooth with crown

Common Questions and Answers about Sensitive tooth with crown


Avatar f tn The tooth for the back part of the bridge had a crown on it with a previous root canal from about 10 years ago. I had never had any problems with this tooth. Once the bridge was placed, I had severe sensitivity and pain from the back tooth. I've gone to the dentist several times and he always makes some excuse as to why it is hurting. Once, there was cement in the gum line. Second, the nerves need to die around the tooth.
Avatar m tn i am supposed to back to him if it doesn't improve, but i can't see how a bite guard has anything to do with sensitivity. anyone out there with advice?
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 n tn Again, if all is well and if all was done correctly with your crown, you should not need this. I also suspect that if you are having sensitivity it may be due to poor margins (the edges of the crown may not extend far enough and may not be well adapted to the tooth) At this point, I'd get another opinion about why you are having this problem, and about the quality/integrity of the work that was done.
Avatar n tn With an increased frequency I have noted heat sensitivity for the tooth with the crown. I have also been having an slightly achey jaw. My dentist said my pockets are fine - x ray appears normal. Would antibiotics solve this problem or does it appear I'll need to get the crown taken off and another root canal done? Thanks for your responses.
Avatar n tn Nothing seems to happen when there is cold,but I haven't really tried direct contact with cold. I can put my tongue over the tooth after I have eaten something warm and get intense pain. I have not gone to the dentist yet. I have had this pain for several months now and am wondering if it is serious enough for the crown to be replaced. I'm looking for what the right procedure for this will be. Please list all options that I should be looking at. Thank you for all your help.
Avatar n tn Not really sensitive to cold/heat but if I press on the temporay crown with my finger I can elicit mild pain on the buccal side of the top of the tooth but not the linqual side. Is it normal for there to be pain on chewing even softer foods right after a crown prep? If so how long should this take to go away? Thanks.
Avatar n tn It aches on and off during the day and night (i live on ibuprofen to help dull the pain). The crowned tooth and now even the surrounding teeth are sensitive to hot/cold and bitter/sweet. Teeth around the crown have shifted and are our of alignment. If I rinse with salt water, it hurts. It is soooo sensitive. What could be wrong?
Avatar n tn after he drilled the decay away, he placed a temp crown. No root canal was needed. i had no problems chewing or drinking with the temp crown. I went back for my permanant crown and my dentist cemented on my permanant gold crown. no porcelin was needed as it is a molar and no one sees it but me. however, the tooth under the crown is very sensitive to cold and heat through the crown. does this mean that a build up was needed? Do i have him remove the crown and complete the buildup?
Avatar n tn Its possible to try to tap the crown off with a hook underneath to pop it out, but sometimes it can also pop the crown with a part of the tooth and break it so its not worth it in my opinion unless the crown appears to be somewhat loose already. Even then, you still run the risk of breaking the tooth.
Avatar n tn Years ago I had a crown done on the 2nd tooth from the rear on the lower right side of my mouth. A few weeks back, I started to notice that my tooth had become pressure sensitive when eating things that were a bit harder than most, but other than that I haven't had any issues with the pain. I made an appointment with my dentist late last week, and he took an xray of the tooth and said he didn't see a thing wrong with it via the xray.
Avatar m tn I have crowns on 8 and 9 but not sure if it is veeners or crowns at 7 and 10, but there is no big problem with them. I have had a previous crown at 8 since the tooth was so damaged, later I got a gray stain on it, x-ray said nothing (they've never seen it before they said) so they drilled it up and found out it was just a pocket of air or something of the like, so they sealed it back up with a new crown. I have extreme sensitivity on the back and front of that tooth, + tooth 9.
Avatar n tn I was told that if keeps bothering for 2 or more weeks then he might remove the crown and check the tooth. The tooh is sensitive with cold and hot and pressure pain when eating hard food. The pain goes all the way to the gums but its a pressure pain. It feel like someone is pressing the tooth forcefully. I also have a bad headache after eating. my jaws hurts. I have a bad tmj.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a problem with a crown I had done in early January, however, the tooth has been very problematic for a while. The tooth is the second to last on the bottom right (I don't know the proper name). I had a small cavity in it filled in late July. The tooth was alright at first but a few weeks after the filling was done it became very sensitive to hot/cold and any pressure. Slowly it began feeling better but was never comfortable to chew with.
Avatar n tn I have just had a tooth prepared for a crown but the dentist refused to fit a temporary crown to cover the area - this left me in a mess as it was really sensitive. I went back to dentist and told him, and asked him if he would fit a temp crown - he refused again, and said I should use a toothpaste for sensitive teeth and he painted the 'stump' with something to de-sensitise the area. I have never heard of anyone being left with a tooth exposed like this (for over a week !
Avatar n tn I was advised to have a root canal by a specialist which I did two weeks ago. Still the tooth with the crown is so painfull it cant be touched and is sensitive to being brushed. After a round of antibotics and then a round of steriods, I dont know what to do next. What could possilbly be the cause?
Avatar n tn My problem is that my tooth bothers me while I eat, but not to the point that I can't eat and it's not sensitive all the time but after I eat it throbs for about an hour. I can't tell if the problem is in my tooth or it is my gum line because that is the area that hurts. Is this pain normal?
Avatar f tn I just had my teeth cleaned and now for 2 weeks scince I have some throbbing and soreness if i chew on that crowned tooth, could it be cracked??? how can i tell why it's sensitive now if i eat hard things over there scince the cleaning..
Avatar f tn After my insistence that the pain was still there, the dentist thought it was referred pain from the molar behind it, so I got a root canal and crown on that tooth as well, several years ago. I'm still experiencing pain to hot and cold and sensitivity to sweet. I'm sure it is one of those two molars. I have been back to the endodontist who checked the teeth with both hot and cold, and I had no reaction. The gum around and between the teeth seems sensitive to me as well.
Avatar m tn My concern is obviously food getting caught undernear the temp and into the tooth. Is this normal for a temporary crown? Also, if I drink water, and swish on that side of the mouth, I get loot of sensitivty pain. Is this due to being a temp crown and will it go away with a permanment? #30 already had a root canal done, so I suspect #31 is the culprit.
Avatar n tn I didn't experience any pain or sensitivity before the root canal, but after with the temporary crown, the tooth was extremely sensitive to temperature and chewing. I had hoped that the permanent crown would help this, but so far I am experiencing the same sensitivity. My dentist has checked my bite and the margins and says that they both look good. The gums around the tooth look slightly red and irritated, though my dentist atttributed this to the crown fitting (yesterday).
Avatar n tn If this filling comes out, your tooth will be sensitive to heat and cold and the nerve endings will be exposed with lots of pain. Hence, please go as per the advice of your dentist. Take care!
Avatar f tn I have not had any pain to speak of for the past two or three months until yesterday when, suddenly, my top front tooth started with terrible nerve pain. It comes and goes; it is sensitive to hot and cold which will trigger the pain and I can't bite through anything with it. Sometimes it comes on seemingly for no reason. I think I may have irritated it by biting down on something hard and now it's just super sensitive. But I am also worried that it might be something more serious.
Avatar m tn He filed my tooth and is planning on putting a crown over it with no root canal. Does anyone knows if that is safe? Wouldn't the tooth be too sensitive afterwards? I'll appreciate your imput on this issue. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Stupidly, I let the new dentist convince me that I should have the tooth crowned. There was no problem with the prep, nor with the temp I wore for three weeks, but as soon as he installed the crown it felt wrong--I had a feeling of intense pressure on the tooth, as though it were in a clamp or vise. Within a couple of days I developed an intense throbbing pain. Four months later I still have it.
Avatar n tn I need a shot before taking the crown off because it's very sensitive. Can they shave down the crown while it's still in my mouth? I had the same problem with this tooth when I got the filling. The dentist had to shave it down. The filling finally broke after 2 years and that's why I needed a crown.
Avatar n tn I then had crown lenghtening surgery in the same upper back area as I had develped a deep pocket (I was told there was not enough margin from gum to tooth from the original crown placement) After several months of healing, I had the permanant crown placed on the two back upper teeth. The very last back tooth seems to be fine. The second to last tooth has been sensitive since the temporary crown was placed. Its been over 3 months and it is still sensitive to the touch and when I chew.
