I had pain in my lower right first molar a few weeks ago. The dentist said the tooth has a small crack. He filled it and sent me on my way. After a month, I went back to the dentist for the crowning procedure. While I had the temporary crown, I had biting pain. When it was time to get the permanent crown, I told him about the biting pain. He looked at it and said he could still see the crack and I needed a root canal treatment. I had the done that day. Before I left his office, he said one was inflamed and I have to go back to him after two weeks. I went to him after two weeks for more cleaning and scraping of roots.
After another two weeks, I went to see him again for the preparation of the tooth for the crown. I went back to him two times more for the crown impressions and permanent crown placement. Right after I had the permanent crown put on, I was in a horrible pain. After a few days, I’ve got some swelling in my cheek and gums. I kept going back to the dentist but he could not see anything wrong, no evidence of on and the crown was perfectly seated on the tooth. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be going wrong? I am tired going back to the dentist who could not find where the problem is coming from. I have been in pain for several weeks already. Please help! Thanks.
