See your dentist: The root canal therapy may be acting up, or your bite may be high. Needs to be looked at.

Endodontist: Have an endodontist evaluate your root canal to be sure all the canals were properly treated. Pain can also come from the gum:(periodontal disease); and /or from an illfitting crown.

Bite: It could be the crown is hitting a touch too hard when you slose. Hope that this is the problem and all you need is a small bite adjustment.
