I had a tooth prepped for a crown 7 weeks ago. The temporary was left on for 4 weeks, due to the crown having to go back for more porcelain build up. I did not experience any pain on the tooth with the temporary. Even when the temp came off during that period, I could brush it with electric toothbrush. No sensitivity at all. When the new crown was finally placed, there was an immediate pain on one spot upon dry fitting. Cemented the tooth and that spot has continued to ache. The ache will go away if I do not chew on that side of my mouth. It has been 3 weeks now, and if I chew on that tooth it will ache for hours. Please let me know what you think.
I have been in for evaluation. Was told the crown was probably irritating a capillary and that I should give it 4-6 weeks to turn into itself and that it would build dentin around itself and heal. Does that sound feasible? Thank you.
