Tooth crown moving

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth crown moving


703897 tn?1248023574 If you feel crown moving, it's probably the crown is not well fitted or the whole tooth is moving. If your dentist can not solve your problem, you may need to see another dentist.
703897 tn?1248023574 My gum pain is starting to subside and the crown seems like is starting to stay in place, ajusting itself to the gums, but the crown keeps moving sideways when I eat. I get gaps between number 18 and 20 when this happens. #19 is the tooth the cap is on. I have attached pictures so you can see what I am talking about in my profile. Why does the cap keep moving sideways left to right and right to left when I eat making gaps appear between the teeth?
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 Tonight, as I was flossing my teeth, I could not, initially get the floss between my tooth and the crown because the crown had moved! There is no pain and it is not wiggly. I was eventually able to floss the area, but I am very concerned. Will I have to have the crown replaced? Is a moving crown within the normal range of acceptability as long as there is no pain? What should I do?
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.
703897 tn?1248023574 Now that I have had two root canals, my #19 crown is still digging into my gums and irritating them and it is moving. I told him along it was moving when I ate, that I could feel it and he stated it was not moving. Uhhhhhhhh Everytime I think about how I trusted this dentist I want to kick my self in the teeth. lol Thanks to this website I am on my way to recovery. Thanks to Jerome. I never knew what a prosthodontist was. Now I have found a great one in Columbus.
Avatar n tn in order for this crown to fit? Shouldn't the crown fit into the space without moving other teeth?
Avatar f tn i cant answer all your questions but it is normal when a crowned tooth needs a root canal to jusy drill thru the top of the crown. you would chance damaging the tooth more by removing the crown first. many teeth with deep filling dont end up needing a root canal but dental work close to the nerve can cause trauma. after the crown is place sometimes the trauma calms down and sometimes it doesnt. if it doesnt a root canal is necessary.
Avatar m tn I had a crown placed about 2 weeks ago on tooth #4 as it had cracked. It was fine for a few days after I went back for a high bite adjustment but now its sensitive to cold(only a few seconds) and hurts periodically along with the neighboring teeth - both upper and lower. The dentist said that this is from grinding my teeth but if I have been grinding all along wouldn't these symptoms of pain and sensitivity to cold have been present prior to the crown being placed?
703897 tn?1248023574 If your crown is moving chances are you are getting food particles and bacteria up and around the margins. Eventually you will begin to have decay on the tooth underneath. If you sign a release of medical record form, they must let you at least LOOK at your records. Some offices can charge a fee to COPY them, but by law they are required to release information you request. Also, get a copy of all the consents you signed and review the billing.
97628 tn?1204465633 At dental exam yesterday, dentist agreed and says he will need to correct my bite and that a wisdom tooth that is slanted may also be causing pressure. The wisdom tooth was there before the crown, and the crown was a tight fit. I mentioned the coincidental onset at all the specialists I was shifted off to and they all said "He'd have had to really rough you up to cause BPPV" LOL They assumed it was BPPV. I'm not even 40 and a nurse looked doubtful.
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 n tn change of front tooth position may result from occlusal interference of posterior crown, whether implant supported or not.
Avatar n tn it should be shaped like a tooth as much as possible
Avatar n tn Now, approximately four months later, I have a large white bump coming out from the side of my gum on this crowned area. It is painful and it seems as though I can actually feel the crown moving up and down at times. I do not have a dentist appointment until next month. What do you think this could be? Is it something that I should make an appointment for prior to next month's visit? I'm just trying to figure out what it could possibly be. Thanks so much!
Avatar n tn What I don't understand is, if this is expected pain after crown work, why didn't I have this problem after the first crown attempt? Was the tooth filed too close to the nerve? I am frustrated with the diagnosis that I need to be a tough guy regarding the pain -- particularly when the pain is so intense that it wakes me up at night, has me doubling over in pain with a glass of cold milk, and is so sensitive that I don't dare eat anything sturdier than baby food.
709501 tn?1229141898 I had a crown put on a cracked tooth (upper right side molar) four days ago and am in serious pain. Unfortunately my dr. called yesterday to check on me and I missed the call. I called today and the office is closed till Monday! Should I be worried? Is this normal? It hurts all the way to my ear and my ear feels plugged. I am taking ibuprophen and an occasional Norco to help at night, but I am worried because I am also breast feeding my 5 month old son. Any advice would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I had a abcessed tooth. i had just gotten braces and something got stuck in my tooth from my teeth moving. i knew i had it though it hurt extrmely bad. they went in and cleaned the area really good had to numb me 3 times and took xrays couldn't find anything. but like i said the pain was horrible. once they cleaned it they gave me a mouth wash that kept it clean and antibiotics. i felt much better that day.
Avatar m tn Mind you I guess I meant buffing the backside and not the underside of the crown. The back of the crown is where it meets with the bottom tooth. But I'm still wondering. Is it common for the crown to move at all? Of course I'm merely talking a millimeter perhaps. 'and I only feel the movement if I place my finger over that crown whilst biting. Technically speaking, I 'Should' be able to bite into an Apple without worries, no?
Avatar m tn but instead to make it even, he then made the veneered tooth shorter than the crown tooth. I am so upset with they way they look now. What are the options do I have? should I ask him to replace the veneer? whould it make my gums recede more if i replace the veneer? Please advise. Thanks !
Avatar f tn I have a temporary crown. It didnt hurt for about 3 months. Then out of no were sometimes it is sore. Like even if I didnt eat anything har. My dentist had sheduled me for a crown adjustment.
Avatar m tn I got crown on my molar about 2 weeks ago and then the food started to get stuck between my tooth and the crown. I used to take it out with floss but that started to hurt a little. Now that one side of the gum (the outer side of the gum between tooth and the crown) remains swollen and hurts when I eat food - I guess the food gets in between and hurts. My dentist is on vacation for a week, any idea whats wrong here and what could possibly be the solution?
Avatar f tn I chose to have a tooth pulled that needed a root canal. My mother died of cancer and told be never get a root canal. She swore that the cancer in her breast grew rapidly after she had an absess and dental work done. So after reading Whole Body dentistry I was certain that some of my physical problems were linked to this tooth. I had a pulpotomy done but never went back to complete the root canal.
1565868 tn?1300868860 If your tooth was just not taking regardless of how a procedure was done, if the tooth was moving because of another tooth, ect. then he could have tried his best. This would be the argument. That argument dosen't matter, this guy messed up. I have no legal advice, but, you should look into him taking care of you (of course not him physically messing with your teeth). It is his fault.
Avatar n tn Because the tooth is hurting does not necessarily mean that it is fractured. It could be that the infection from the dead nerve has not healed. I would not rush to extract the tooth unless you get a consult with an Endodontist(RC specialist). It is possible that the rct has to be retreated. There are opther ways to replace that tooth other than a bridge--implant is a possibility--so you do not have to touch the other teeth. I would first explore the first scenario.
Avatar f tn Not remedied, dentist proceeded july 2013 and put crown on 16. It felt tight. and followed the same outward angle. September 2013 dentist said i needed to replace a crown on implant site 26 to stabilize my jaw. it wasn't bothering me. It was excruciatingly tight, started to shift all my upper teeth inwards and to the right and off center. he refused to take it off.then teeth around 16 went inwards as well. developed severe speech impediment.
Avatar f tn For the last 6 months or so I noticed that the crown was moving quite a bit and had to floss food debris from underneath regularly . Today my dentist took an x-ray and found one of the roots had fractured. He extracted what was left of my tooth and the roots saying that I risked an abcess any time. Was this the only procedure possible? Could I have undergone another treatment and got the tooth recrowned?
703897 tn?1248023574 I told him they are irritating my gums and moving and felt like there are spaces between my teeth and the one felt like it was too high and bulky. After 7months in pain, I could not stand it anymore and had to start doing research for myself when I found this web site. Scottma explained to me what a prosthodontist was and that I should go see one to have the occlusal looked at. Thanks to a prosthdontist I found out what the problem was.
Avatar n tn I went to dentist B for a 2nd opinion and he says the same so I had the temp crown for tooth #3 put in appx 9/2011. I still have the pain after a while with temp crown. Dentist B sends me to an endodontic dentist. She is great this endodontic doctor but I am still not sure what to do. She says the tooth could have been fractured. She wants to do a root canal. It is now 11/2011 the pain has subsided but still somewhat there again only when i chew on that side.
