About a month ago, I had cracked my second molar in the upper left side. I had a filling on this tooth. I went to the dentist it have it fixed. The dentist after checking me out told me that my second molar on the lower right side has a fracture too. He said both teeth needed and he referred me to an Endodontist.
After two days, I went to the and had the canals done. When I got the temporary crowns, my jaws hurt a lot and my gums were raw. The pain was killing me! I took Ibuprofen three times a day for three weeks. One day, I noticed a black stuff coming out from my gums around the crown in my lower right second molar tooth. I informed the dentist about it during my appointment for the permanent crowns. He said it was a chunk of the filling, which was stuck in my gums. After he removed it, the pain in my and went away instantly. While the dentist fit the permanent crown on my lower right second molar, it cracked when he asked me to bite down to check the fit. (The permanent crown on the upper tooth was fitted perfectly fine.) The dentist said he would have the lab make a new one. After a week, I finally had the permanent crown fitted in. Two days later, the crown broke in half for no apparent reason. The dentist returned it to the lab. While waiting for the lab to finish the new crown, he put on a temporary crown, which gave me sharp pain. It hurts so badly whenever anything hot touches it. My bite does not line up anymore and I had a lot of discomfort.
I now regret allowing the dentist to touch this tooth. I should not have to deal with a lot of pain and sensitivity now. It was not painful before and it did not give me any problems at all. Does anyone else have this kind of experience? Will my bite line up again after I get the permanent crown fitted in? How long does it take pain to go away? I would be thankful for any help or suggestions.
