Tooth crown when

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth crown when


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 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 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 n tn However, upon arriving to the appointment, he decided to do a crown. When I asked why a crown instead of an onlay, I was told a crown would provide a longer lifetime to the restoration so I agreed. If it helps to know the cavity was only affecting the MO surfaces. My dilemma is that after more of the tooth structure was removed to prep for the crown, my tooth began to feel sensitive to the air device my dentist was using, when before it wasn't.
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 it should be shaped like a tooth as much as possible
Avatar f tn 9 and 11 and put crown. my tooth were not damage or decayed or not any craks. When i complain her she told me becuse my tooth were root-chanal and the stage after root-channal is crown. My question Is that really neccessary to put crown for teeth that isn't painful, damaged or cracked and just is root-chanal? Now i am in a really bad feeling . i think that i lost 2 of my tooth by the dentist because of her fault. Please answer my question and tell me what i can do.
Avatar m tn The recommendation for the crown depends on the location of the tooth, the perceived forces that the tooth is subjected to, and the amount of healthy/sound tooth structure that remains. Your tooth is compromised due to cavity and fracture .Further weakening has occurred due to the root canal procedure which has created a hole in the middle of the tooth.
Avatar n tn tell your dds when you have your root canal that you cant have the crown done immediatly. my dds said the tooth and root canal will last about 5 yrs without a crown but not to keep putting it off or i might crack the tooth and the root canal will go bad and ill lose the tooth. have it done, put it on your credit and get the crown when you can, the dds will tell you the same thing mine did, im sure.
Avatar n tn I have managed to get an appointment with the relief dentist and was happy to be told all was well with the tooth and crown. The problem seems to be with the GAP created when the original tooth was made smaller for the crown. The Temporary crown does not fill this GAP between the tooth and the preceeding tooth. The gum here is inflamed, probably because of food that is been pushed downwards when I chew. I have been given a special gell to apply and all should come good.
Avatar n tn Even if I never bite anything harder than apples, will that tooth still fracture without a crown as the tooth gets more brittle and worn? Thanks so much for keeping this forum up!
Avatar n tn Porcelain fused to metal crown is not likely to generate galvanic eletricity when seating a crown. However, if there is a amalgam filling within the tooth, metal substructure may contact amalgam filling and generates galvanic shock. Cement may insulate the surface contact between two different metals. Replacement the amalgam filling with other non-metal filling material would definitely resolve the problem,or , deliver a full ceramic crown.
Avatar f tn I had my very back bottom right tooth removed and had a crown put on the very back top right tooth. Four days after having the Procedures done I scheduled me an appointment to see the dentist again I was having top right Jaw Pain and pressure around the crown that was effecting my sleep.
Avatar n tn It may be that the crown does not fit properly or that the bite is off. Did the tooth hurt immediately after the crown was placed (even in the temporary crown) or did it take a while? Sometimes it does take a while for a root canal to be necessary. Is there any radiographic evidence of infection at the apex(tip) of the tooth. If it is not the bite or fit of the crown, it sounds like a root canal would be the way to go. Good Luck.
Avatar n tn Dentist B said that she could replace the crown (from porceline to lava) and then recommend a bite guard (of which I objected to due to the $300 price tag). Dentist B went ahead and preped the tooth and put on a temp. crown. When I went back to have the lava crown put on, it was sitting too high. After 30-45 minutes of filing it down and fitting it to my tooth the lava crown finally cracked! So they had to take another impression and send off for a new lava crown.
Avatar f tn I am wondering what are all the pros and cons for veneers vs crown, for a root canaled tooth. My tooth has a largish filling on the side in addition to the root canal, so my prime worry is whether a veneer can protect my tooth against getting cracked or damaged. Cost wise they both are about the same, I will be going for metal free ceramic crown/veneer. Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn Hi Tina, thank you for your response. This is my first crown, so it's hard to say what exactly this feeling is. The crown just feels like the tip of it is too long, and it feels like it's just not put on my gums right, although when I feel around on it, it feels like every other tooth on the gum line and doesn't feel loose when I slightly press against it.
Avatar m tn Hi, Maybe you should have the crown adjusted a little more,if the crown is just a little high that could be making it hurt,usually when a tooth needs more adjusting -it hurts when you bite down.When a tooth is cracked you have intermittant pain-not nessessarily when biting down.Hope this helps and good luck-you could always get a second opinion.
Avatar f tn While with the temporary crown I complained about pain on the tooth when biting down..The dentist response, the temporary crown is just too high! He went on with the positioning the permanent crown on, adjust the bite and send me home… I came back complaining that I still have the pain on the same tooth. OH! Then you need a root canal!! He said. My question is: Shouldn’t he figure that out before putting the permanent crown in? Is this lack of experience on his part?
1605619 tn?1301631851 the most important factor to determine whether the tooth is salvable or not depends on the clinical judgement of the treating dentists. Seeing a competent endodontist and restorative dentist is advised.
Avatar n tn But the problem was the tooth with the crown. Now I have had both teeth pulled because root canal crown came off and was infected and the problem was the tooth with the crown. have your dentist x-ray before deciding to pull teeth.
Avatar f tn i have had another crown for 30 years without a single problem. just because a tooth has a crown things can still happen like root fractures but without a crown chances of loosing a cracked/root canaled tooth dramatically increases. if you crown a molar get gold. its much stronger and has less impact on surrounding teeth and gums. it will also last much longer.
Avatar n tn you should realize that teeth are alive, and even though you are numb there is alot of trauma to the tooth when it is prepared (drilled down) for a crown. it usually heals but not always--- sometimes root canal treratment is needed. i always explain this possibility to my patients before i do any drilling at all on any tooth but especially for crowns since so much tooth structure is removed.
Avatar f tn t think taking anything else away from the tooth structure will help anything. Any thoughts on the necessity of crown lengthening? I feel like reg. dentist is pushing me to go other places (perio and endo) and spend money b/c of a brotherhood or ????? I was a dental assistant for 5 years and know a (very) little about dentistry and have never had this feeling of being pushed until now. I am not sure how to handle the situation without spending a ton more money on this tooth.
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 f tn The only reason why I would wait for a crown would be if the wisdom tooth is in the way of making the crown and would make it more difficult for me to place the crown in. If that's the case, then I would recommend wating the 6 to 8 weeks to get a better fitting crown. Ideally, the easier it is for the dentist to do the work, the better the outcome will be.
Avatar n tn I just got a permanent crown put on my root canal tooth and 2 days later, i have pain when eating something hard or crunchy. My root canal was done 7 years ago and i have had no problems but it was recommended to put a crown on it so i did. i went back to my dentist who put on the crown to let him know i was having pain. he checked the bite and said it is fine, gave me antiobiotics and referred me to a specialist to look at the root canal. why would getting a crown cause pain when 1.
