What would cause a tooth to hurt that has a crown and a root canal procedure done on it. Crown feels loose. This was done less than 6 months ago.

  • It looks like you have a infected Root Canal Treated tooth. It can be because of your loose crown where infection must have seeped in or the infection is left during the first root canal treatment. The crown may not be loose but the tooth as whole may be loose and this again is because of infection in the root of the Root Canal Treated tooth. For this you have to go to dentist who after taking xray and clinical examination will decide whether Re-Root canal treatment is possible or not. If not possible then you have to get it extracted.
