Improper crown placement?

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: breakdawn  (9 years ago)

Two years ago, I had a root canal and crown placed on tooth #19. From the day the temporary crown was put on, my gum was very sensitive and would not stop hurting. When the permanent crown was placed, it continued to hurt. My gum felt swollen. The dentist did some adjustments and filing but nothing worked. After two months, the tooth beside it started hurting as well. I was wondering if the crown on tooth #19 was not placed properly and is now putting too much pressure on the tooth beside it. What do you think? Any input would be highly appreciated.

Dear,
It is possible that crown placed has margins that are not aligning with tooth surface (over-contoured causing food retention below it) or margins placed way below gum line. However, it is also importnat to focus on oral hygiene habits especially using floss around crown to keep that area clean. It is unlikely that crown itself put pressure on adjacent teeth especially after such a long time. You should visit your dentist to rule out all the reasons.

If the margins of a crown are placed very deeply under the gums, chronic inflammation results. It could also be a failing root canal. Cannot definitively diagnose without examining you.
