Anterior crowns gum pain help

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: TooMuchPain  (7 years ago)
I had five upper anterior crowns completed one month ago. They are beautiful. However, I have extreme sensitivity to cold and random pain in my gums. Sometimes the pain is so bad behind one of the crowns I can hardly stand it. It seems to radiate into the roof of my mouth and even into my lower teeth - I know it sounds strange. It feels raw but doesn't look raw or unusually red or inflamed. What's happening?

My guess is one of the tooth nerves is irreversibly inflamed. If your dentist verifies this, you will need a root canal.

as per your symptoms it may be due to irreversible damage of pulp of your tooth....go for check up and be sure for actual diagnosis..

agreee with Dr. Kim, Root canal, but your dentist will have to take off that crown , usually breaking it, and making a new one.

If root canal needed and crown was properly done, it is possible to save existing crown by drilling through (a small access hole on the part that's not visible) and repair by filling and use of ceramic conditioner.
