Metal crowned molar( #3) 6 months ago. Soft food is ok to chew. When chewing hard food, very sore to chew. What is it? Bite or root canal?
Either: Get the bite checked first. Often times teeth move slightly after crown place ment, enough to alter occlusion and cause chewing pain. Adjusting the bite will solve the problem. If your bite is correct, or if you continue having problems, have it examined by an endodontist for possible endodontic treatment. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I had teeth #14, crowned, root canalled, 3 roots are cleaned, sealed through bottom of crown, still sore.Can 4th canal spread back to 3, 2, 1 if ..Is?
No, but: This needs to be checked by your own dentist. It could be an incomplete or failed root canal therapy, a fracture of the crown or root, or simple the tooth is sore from contacting your other teeth prematurely, requiring a simple bite adjustment to resolve. If all normal clinical and radiographic tests fail to diagnose the problem, you might consider a cbct (3d image) to figure out the cause. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
