Common Questions and Answers about Tooth crown hurts


Avatar f tn i had a cosmetic dental crown placed 4 years ago now it hurts to touch chew or brush it , is it possible now I need a root canal xrays were done no evidence of abscesss the denist just decided to do a root canal just because should i wait in pain for a second opinion or what would cause this 4 years later if the tooth is covered and tight?
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 So I did and when they put the temp crown on my tooth felt great..... I wasn't bothered by it at all. Now that I have the crown on, my tooth hurts. He has done several filings to it. 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.
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 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 It was never a great crown and didn't meet the bottom tooth (that is the new crown tooth) right, ever. It hurts to put pressure on it either from the bottom or the side. The gums don't hurt though. The newly crowned tooth doesn't hurt at all. What is the problem?
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 think your dentist believes its a sensitivity of your pulp inside the tooth due to the drilling of the crown. Usually that does resolve on its own as the tooth heals.
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 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 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 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 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?
Avatar n tn 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. I was also experience extensive jaw pain the last few days, but that's basically subsided and now the pain is centralized on this tooth.
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 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 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 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 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 f tn I also looked at the tooth after the dentist finished prepping it prior to placing the crown. The dentist drilled three holes in the top of the molar rather than prepping the perimeter of the tooth. I have had crowns in the past so I know how they normally are prepped. Her tooth did have a big filling in it and the pulpa had been removed so that is why she needed the crown, but I am still not sure why she would have drilled holes in the top of the tooth and not ground the perimeter.
Avatar n tn Tooth#18 occlusion needs to be adjusted optimally,otherwise tooth#19 would be very difficult to achieve optimal occlusion. Removal of tooth#19 crown is advised. Leave tooth #19 out of occlusion for a week.If tooth #19 is still problematic, other sources of dental pain need to be investigated. Occlusion certainly plays an important role in the pathogenesis of many mysterious pain, but not always the sole factor. I believe your prosthodontist is competent enough to manage your occlusal problem.
