Tooth crown sensitive

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth crown sensitive


Avatar n tn different cements, blowing air on the tooth, pressing a permanent crown on a tooth, dilling on a tooth, even picking off temporary cement all inflame the nerve (pulp). Inflammation can be reversible or irreversible. In your case, My plan would be to wait a few more weeks. If there is no improvement, I would remove your crown (I would cut it off if i had to) and make you a new temp and then a new crown that I would cement with a cement that has a sedative mixed into it.
Avatar n tn Is it possible that my tooth will not recover after being filed down for a crown? The tooth was perfectly fine until it was prepped for a crown. I have highly sensitive teeth, I have undergone 3 root canals already and suffer from TMJ. I am leary of getting the permanent crown on if my tooth does not quit hurting even though he said he can go through the back and do a root canal. what are my options? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I recently had a cavity removed from a molar. Because it was quite deep, the dentist filled it with a sedative filling and we waited two weeks to see if I experienced any sensitivity. During that time I did not have any sensitivity to cold or hot and the tooth felt fine. Originally, I was told that the remaining tooth structure was about 2 to 3 mm away from the root and that if it did not become sensitive, the tooth would be restored with an onlay.
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 Many stronger cements draw moisture out of the tooth and can leave it very sensitive. If your tooth was prepared correctly so that the crown tucks under your gums, it should never leak or decay. Rest assured, your tooth should be just fine. I would be more concerned about the fracture under the crown. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn They put 2 new temporary crowns on my teeth. After this, I was very sensitive to cold on my left tooth but the right tooth was fine. The right tooth was the one I had the root canal done on. Then I went back a few weeks later for the permanent crown and they took the temporary off and my left tooth was extremely sensitive to cold, to air, to everything. The permanent crowns they sent were the wrong color so they had to send them back out and I had to get temporary ones put on again.
Avatar m tn I recently had a permanent crown put on one of my back molars. My tooth has been sensitive to certain things when the temporary was on there, but not the biting down part of it. When my dentitst was trying to fit my crown on and get the bite rite before she finally cemented it on, whenever she would put the crown on my tooth, I would get the pain, but then it would go away. She kept taking it off and on about 4 times.
Avatar n tn I think I would place a temporary crown on the tooth that is most sensitive to percussion. If all is well after a period of time then a more permanent crown can be fabricated. If this does not work then you would have to consider the adjacent tooth or redoing the root canal on one or both.
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.
Avatar n tn It sounds to me like the nerve in the tooth with the crown is non- vital, which means the nerve is dead and that the tooth needs root canal therapy. I would get to see him asap.
Avatar n tn I had crown lengthening and crown. It all started when my tooth broke off July 19th. Its been about two weeks since the crown (9/13) and I have pain when biting on crunchy food or meat of any kind. It also seems to be really sensitive when I floss in just one area. I also have a salty taste in my mouth. I use sensitive toothpaste and I am so tired of eating just soft foods.
Avatar f tn It seems to be most sensitive between the temporary crown and the tooth just behind it. Is it possible the root to the tooth behind the root canal is damaged? I went back to my dentist and he said everything looks fine and the pain should subside with time. I'm just concerned about permanently placing the finished crown (appt is next week) without finding the cause to my existing pain. ..any advice would be most appreciated!
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 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 m tn same thing its sensitive to cold and not hot but chewing near that tooth and if it gets hit with food it sends a is your tooth now? did you have the permenant crowned yet? my appointment is june 18th and im going to have six new implant teeth and all my upper teeth crwoned..the only one that is upsetting is that left back molar..let me know..
Avatar n tn A couple of weeks ago I began to notice that one of my molars was becoming very sensitive to cold and hot. It also hurt if I sucked air in and was sensitive to pressure. This tooth had a lot of silver filling in it. I went to the dentist and he x-rayed it. He said the root looked good. He also pressed on the tooth and surrounding teeth and this didn't really hurt. The dentist said he felt the tooth was cracked and he would put a temporary crown on it.
Avatar n tn It could be the bite or it could need a root canal. Sometimes after a crown is placed, the tooth can be sensitive due to the trauma of drilling the tooth. This could lead to the tooth requiring a root canal. You should have your dentist check the bite, the crown margins and also the vitality and sensitivity of the tooth. She should not have to live in pain so don't wait too long to go.
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 f tn At any rate tooth is still sensitive to hot and cold. I went in to the endo who did the procedure and he touchd the tooth with cold and at the time in his office I did not feel much pain, but at the right angle on the back of this tooth, I will feel cold and its a sharp pain. 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.
Avatar m tn I was just wondering when he did the root canal, and with all of the shots, could that have made the adjacent tooth more sensitive? Or would the tooth that had the root canal still have some pain, or pressure whenever I bite down?
Avatar f tn I have a tooth - my upper right lateral incisor - that has had multiple problems over the years. When it came in as a child, it had a small nick out of it near the gum line that later became a cavity and I had filled. Over the years (I'm 38), I had it filled a few times as the filling would wear out. The last time, there wasn't enough to have it filled, so my dentist put a crown on it - twice (the first one wasn't high enough into the gum so the lines were visible and wearing).
Avatar m tn Sensitivity to temperature is perfectly normal for a tooth that has received a crown but not a root canal. A lot of times, this will go subside with time. the dentist is right, there is a living pulp under that crown that is irritated from the drilling. Getting a crown put on is very hard on the tooth pulp. In my own experience, getting just a crown without a root canal is more painful long term than a root canal itself.
Avatar n tn i had a crown preparation for my upper (2112) 4days ago and one tooth in particular was sensitive during the prep and now feels very sensitive all the time and is TTP!! is is not that bad that i need painkillers as yet but it is like a dull ache all the time. i am getting worried that the nerve may be dying??? can you suggest anything please or is this normal??
Avatar n tn After I woke up my molar in the very back of my tooth was fractured. I went to the dentist and he said I need a crown. However they don't do onlays and aren't very specialized dentists. So now Im going to a dentsit that does onlay to see if I can get that because I don't want a crown. Only thing I have to wait until January 4 due to no insurance left for this year. My question: When I put temporary filling on I notice a small red dot at the gum line.
Avatar n tn So much so, that when he tried to remove the temporary cap, it was necessary to dumb the area. The tooth is now with a new crown and still remains very sensitive to the touch. If I carefully bite on the upper molar, it can endure chewing of soft foods, but not without some pain. I am a night-time grinder, and thus the reason for this crown per my dentist. I can jiggle the tooth with my fingers and create the pain as well.
Avatar m tn He placed a temp crown which feels very rough, has tooth ache and sensitive to cold now. I am also concerned at my gums at this point because I do not know how he can fix that when it appeared torn or cut off from the procedure. I told him that if I knew that to have a root canal takes this much work I rather have my tooth pulled out since I do not have any molar on one side ( last molar). He made a comment that that tooth is very important to save. Is that true?
