Hi there, I had a crown placed on a my lower left back molar eight weeks ago. Every since the tooth was prepared for a crown it has been very sensitive and painful. I can eat on it without pain but the tooth hurts afterwards. I am constantly taking pain medication. The dentist has checked the bite which is fine. The pain gets worse as the day goes on and at night I am having to take a stronger painkiller to help settle the tooth. I have been to an endodontist but as the tooth does not hurt when he taps it or an xray shows the nerve as ok, he is not prepared to do root canal treatment. I am getting at my wits end with this tooth and am thinking of having it extracted. As I am missing my upper left first molar, this tooth is taking all the load, could this be the problem? What are my options?
