6mo. ago had endo done on botton last tooth,which was quite sensitive to cold, hot and tapping with instrament. After endo had a temp. 6 weeks no sensitivity to hot or cold or press. Had gold crown soon afterwards was very sensitive to pressure, and brushing with electric brush. They reduced the occlusion it did help . Now it is becoming sensitive to heat, now again with pressure, little with cold. If there was a hidden canal would'nt it have been sensitive to cold and hot during the time I had the temp? If they have to do another endo would that ruin the crown? Should I have to pay for another endo? And possibly another crown? There is now some off/on slight lingering pain. Thank You

  • Normally the temp filling is not supposed to there for 6 months as with temporary filling there can be leakage causing the infection of the tooth. If the crown is not given immediately after the root canal treatment atleast permanent filling should be done. Now when you got the crown made, may the tooth has already become reinfected. For that you have to go for re-root canal treatment and it depends on your dentist how he removes the crown. If the crown is damaged while removing then yes you have to go for new crown. For re-root canal treatment after 6 months and crown if damaged, you have to pay again.
