I had acrown put in and since then, my teeth are sensitive, dicoloration, red swoollen gums, and swollen lip. My dentist says it is a side effect from my perscription, but my doctor says it isnt. All I am using is prevident 5000. What could it possible be? And what can I try to use? Thank You

  • Sandra having pain about a week after the crown is an alarming signal. You didnt mention whether the tooth is Root Canal Treated or not .If it is root canal treated and u have pain on biting n chewing then u definitely need to see ur dentist and get clinical examination done along with Xray because ur symptoms suggest that either there is infection or the root canal filling is not done properly. If the root canal treatment is not done then the pain is due to infection in the tooth that is crowned.So in that case u need to get RCT done.

  • You have not mentioned whether the tooth which is crowned is Root Canal Treated or not. If it is not Root Canal Treated then the swelling pain and redness of gums is because of the infection in the tooth which is crowned. Normally, first we do root canal treatment and then crown the tooth and then one does not face any problem. But if your tooth is already root canal treated then may be it is root canal failure or some other tooth is infected. You have to visit the dentist and get the xray done. These symptoms cannot be because of prevident 5000 untill unles you are allergic to it, which is very unlikely and it is difficult to comment without clinical examination.
