4 months ago I had 3 dental procedures when a crown fell off. I think it was called crown lengthening. The procedures were terribly painful, to try and save the tooth. Now, I am experiencing sores and throat irritation in the same location where a new crown was put on. I went to a second dentist for another opinion and he filed down the new crown thinking that would solve the problem of the sores and irritation, but it didn't. I have tried salt water rinses, baking soda, different tooth pastes and rinses, plantain (herb), but nothing has helped. There is no swelling or gum redness; just this trying to swallow something in the back of the mouth. Any suggestions? thanks.

  •  The soreness of the tongue and the irritation can be either because of some infection or the crown is irritating the tongue. As thee is no pain ,the chances of infection is quiet less So may be the crown is causing the irritation. You have to rule out the chances of allergy also though the incidence of allergy is negligeble. Without doing the clinical examination it is difficult to give the diagnosis.
