Tooth Sensitivity After Crown
The crown of a tooth is that part of the tooth on top of the root. The crown of the tooth is the part that is visible in the mouth. A crown restoration is a procedure that restores the crown of a tooth that is damaged by fracture or extensive decay by cementing a replica of the crown over a prepared tooth, and is one of the most common ...Read more
Toothache : It's not uncommon to have sensitivity following the placement of a filling, especially to cold. If it aches on it's own it might indicate that the bite needs to be adjusted. The greater the intensity, frequency ; duration of the ache, the more likely it might require root canal therapy. See your dentist asap for an evaluation of the tooth. It might be a quick simple fix or something more serious! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

My dentist recomends root canal and crown treatment after cavity filling caused extreme throbbing pain. Is this better than tooth extraction?
Dentis removed amalgam filling, drilled tooth root after suspecting caries toxicity.Now tooth area is swollen.Taking macropen. Is this normal/enough?
No: It is normal to wear out some of the temporary filling. However, it is not good to have the temporary filling completely out. Once the inside of the tooth is exposed to contaminants like saliva, bacteria and food, root canal will become contaminated and eventually leak. Go back to your dentist right the way to have it checked. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
3 wisdom tooth extractrd and a molar tooth bone grafted also 6 weeks ago. Can flossing shift teeth positions?
Not uncommon: The edges of crowns are often placed below the gum line. Trauma from the procedure will cause irritation of the gum tissues. Ideally, do not put anything on the tissue to soothe it. An anti inflammatory medication should help. If it persists more than 2-3 days, contact the dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Tooth pain started 3 weeks after perm crown.
Dentist: wait, see if the nerves correct themselves.
Root canal? Wait?
Heat hurts and can't chew food
RCT: Sensitivity to heat is especially a classic sign of nerve involvement and the need for root canal therapy. Pain on biting pressure can be merely the bite being high and the need to adjust the bite. However, both symptoms combined along with the course of events that you describe would make the need for rct very likely. I think 3 weeks is long enough to wait for resolution. See your dentist now. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
Depends: Some sensitivity after filling is due to irritation to the nerve, after few days subsides. Others is because the bite after filling placement is too high & needs adjustment or balancing. After adjustment sensitivity goes down after 2 to 3 days. And if the sensitivity does not go away after 1 week and the quality of pain changes to constant, spontaneous, and to hot temperature might need root canal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
See the Dentist: The dentist needs to check for 3 general possibilities: 1) there is still infection at the end of the root where the root canal was done. 2) the crown is higher than the rest of the teeth and you are biting on this tooth first. 3) the root may be split. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: Did the dentist made a hole through the top of your crown to do the root canal? If so then, and the rest of the crown is ok and there is no decay anywhere else on the tooth, a filling can be placed in the hole that was made to do the root canal. After the years pass by, this crown may need to be replace or the fillng replaced depending on how it holds up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: The gums bleed when the tooth is removed because the blood flow to the tooth is broken and open. This is common, and should stop quickly if not irritated. Certain medications can slow the clot formation and suction from a cigarette or straw can cause bleeding to continue. It may indicate gingivitis to the area which is normal as brushing and cleaning around an extraction site should be gentle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes: Every time a filling is removed and replaced a little bit of tooth is removed. Typically when the filling is 1/3 or more the width of the tooth, the tooth structure is thin enough that the tooth is vulnerable to break and so a crown is placed. If a crown is not placed the tooth can break and need to be removed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
It All Depends: All other answers are valid. However, I'd like to add that if the temp crown was recently placed while you're waiting for a permanent crown, the black coloration can be from bacteria getting through the temp crown. It's a result of not having a good seal with the temp crown and usually not a cavity. You commonly see this if the temp crown has been in place for some time where the seal is bad. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Upper molar crowned, root canalled(same tooth), 3 roots done by X-ray shown, still mild tooth pain always, does this mean 4th? Canal?
Perhaps..: Most upper molars only have 3 canals, but...A 4th is possible. Sometimes a tooth with a root canal needs time to calm down. I don't know what your time frames are but give it a little more time. Then go back and see the dentist that did your root canal. It might need a retreat or apicoectomy, or maybe just another round of antibiotics. Either way...I commend you...Good call. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
It should be: If you have any discomfort, report it to your orthodontic provider but it should be ok unless major trauma to your tooth is what lead to your needing root canal therapy.
