Tooth crown hurts

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth crown hurts


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 f tn Just to reassure myself I took a tooth pick and touched up along the top of this tooth around the gum line where the crown meets the gum. I feel pain when I touch the top of that tooth where some exposed dentin is. I am at a loss. My doctor said its not his root canal. But my tooth still hurts. I am certain its not other teeth feeling the pain. He said it would be very rare to have another canal in that tooth and I would be a textbook case if this was the reason.
Avatar n tn The gum around the tooth is hurting me real bad. The dentist said I needed a crown because my tooth was cracked. He said my gum was not infected and I only needed a crown. I went about 10 days ago and had the temp. put own and it still hurts around the gum and the pain feels like it is nerve and not the tooth. I can not eat anything on that side of my mouth and I am having to take pain medicine every 4 to 6 hrs for pain. The only relief I get is when I lay down and go to sleep.
Avatar n tn You could always seek a 2nd opinion. You shouldn't live with pain. A root canal treated tooth should not be sensitive to hot and cold.
Avatar n tn Hi all. I had a tooth prepared for a crown on Tues. March 7. After the carbocaine wore off, i decided to have lunch and when i bit down on that side, a SHOCK of pain went through my i "hit a nerve." I called the dentist and they said it was most likely cuz the truth had been traumatized.
Avatar f tn Have not had the crown placed yet but I am having pain when heat hits the tooth is this normal or could there be something wrong? I will be having the crown placed in 2 weeks should I go in sooner..
Avatar n tn m ready to have the tooth pulled. Are there some teeth that just cannot be fitted with a crown? (or is this just an incompetant dentist?) This discussion is related to <a href=''>dental crown problems</a>.
Avatar n tn I've had two root canals done on the teeth on the lower right side of the mouth, the last four teeth on the back. Two teeth have root canals done on them while the other two are used to support the crown. The canals have been done for almost a year now, but one still hurts. One canal is fine, but the other one has been hurting continuously ever since it was done. The pain is usually not sharp, but a constant dull pain.
697381 tn?1228011309 The tooth that had the root canal and crown on the same day (1 week ago) feels fine. Tooth 3, the one with the year old root canal and new crown hurts. The gum tissue about the crown on 3 is swollen, and it feels like the crown is pushed up too high. Is that possible? The most severe problem I am having is a severe ache in tooth 2, it feels like an intense pressue. I can't bite down on 2 or 3 at all. If I push on 2 with my tongue it hurts.
Avatar m tn 8 months ago, I got a root canal and crown on a back, bottom tooth. Ever since, I have had pain on that tooth whenever I bite on it. I had no pain prior to this. It does not hurt w/ hot and cold, only biting. Been back to both endodontist and dentist re: problem. Both thought maybe a bite/grinding issue; both filed/adjusted crown a bit. Took x-rays. Both said was not infected (that you could tell by xrays). Filing tooth has not helped. Bite guard has not helped.
Avatar n tn I already have the permant crown on and they did the red paper to make the tooth was not too high and it was ok. I just started getting this pain yesterday.
Avatar n tn Right before Thanksgving I was experiencing pain from a tooth with a 3 year crown. The crown felt lower as if it had shifted, there was pain sensitivity to hot/cold and it hurt when I bit down. The dentist sent me to an endodontist who discovered infection. I had a root canal done and was put on a regime of antibiotics for 10 days. The bite was off for some reason and that was adjusted as well. All the symptoms subsided except now there is a pain/soreness on the SIDES of the crowned tooth.
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 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?
5875644 tn?1375886365 I have also had a root canal done which resulted in that tooth receiving a full crown (ouch on the cost too), and I assume you have had the tooth sealed up somehow, say a crown. You didn't say. I would see my primary care first, to the degree I understand your problem... clearly you need get a medical check.
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 Well, now my whole upper left side of my gums hurt and I keep getting headaches, and on top of that, the crown feels like it will fall out every time I try chewing on it or if I drink water, it feels like the water is going beneath the crown. It also keeps hitting the bottom tooth when saying specific words... What could this be? What should I do? My dentist said that he would only shorten up the bottom teeth and that the crown was a perfect fit...
Avatar n tn I experienced no pain with it.. I went to the dentist and he said it was going to require a crown. It is the second tooth on the bottom left. After they drilled it down to put the temp crown on it became very sensitive which I thought was normal as basically all I had was a stump of a tooth left. I did fine with my temp crown and got my permanent one on a month ago but I am having alot of sensitivity to cold and it still hurts some when I chew with that tooth.
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 The dentist said he felt the tooth was cracked and he would put a temporary crown on it. He did this about a week and a half ago. As soon as the novicaine wore off, I noticed the tooth was no longer sensitive to hot or cold. However, it continues to be sensitive to pressure. If I press the tooth hard or chew on hard foods it hurts for a few seconds. This crown does not feel high at all, if anything it feels low if there is such a thing.
Avatar m tn The following morning (Sunday), I awoke to a throbbing toothache and pain when I touch the tooth. Even swallowing hurts when my tongue touches the tooth. What's a reasonable explanation? Will it get better or is this symptomatic of a worse issue.
Avatar n tn Doctor has prepared my tooth (molar, #30) for a crown, however while waiting for a crown for a about a week I've experienced pain in my down and even upper jaw from the right side. Took ibuprofen, so I could function during the day and sleep during night. No pain directly in the tooth, but dull pain around it in the jaw.
Avatar n tn The permanent crown was put on three weeks ago. I went to the dentist one week ago becuase the tooth is still sore- sore to the touch and it hurts to chew on something hard. I would describe it as feeling the way it feels when you touch a bruise. It also seems heat sensitive. I returned to the dentist Saturday to see an "associate" of my dentist. He took and x-ray and told me the root canal looked good and the seal on the crown was good.
Avatar n tn Starting early last week on 9/8 when I woke up in the morning, there was a sudden pain in the 2nd to the last teeth on my last side (teeth after my cracked crown). The pain lasted till today 9/16. Everytime I chew, it hurts and sometimes when I brush my teeth it hurts as well and it bleeds a little. Today, there was a weird bump feeling under my tongue and I checked in the mirror and there was a red kind of clearish bump under my left side of my tongue close to my cracked crown.
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 My jaw pain is on left side only - same side as tooth. My crown was placed on tooth with temporary cement and left like that for months - but the off and on discomfort remained. It is NOT same pain I experienced when it was cracked - - it is on the sides only and almost feels like it is loose - yet dentists have examined it and say it is not loose. Also - most of the time when the tooth hurts, my jaw (on left only) hurts - the pain goes back to from of ear area.
Avatar f tn I would not place the crown until the tooth is asymptomatic. The root canal tooth should be taken out of occlusion so that you can not bite on it. If the tooth is improving a little bit every day then I think you are on the right path, if not I think you need to see the doctor.
