I just had a tooth fix with a crown. then I had a cleaning. The lady gave me a little brush to help clean between my teeth. I used it, then my tooth started to hurt. Now it really aches. Used some anbesol(probably used too much. Now my cheek is swollen. The pain doesn't stop for too long. Can't lay on my left cheek to sleep or pain starts.

  • If the tooth is not hurting then may be this pain and swelling is due to your using abesol and toothbrush to harshly. Now donot irritate it further. Do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day, maintain good oral hygiene with gentle brushing and donot eat anything from that side and also donot try to sleep on that side. If it does not subside in a day or two then you have to schedule an appointment with your dentist. for more info on problems after dental crowns you can check this link in our website from given link.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-dental-crowns-72.aspx
