Two weeks ago, I got a temporary crown on tooth #3. After the procedure, I’ve been in chronic pain on both the tooth and jaw. Sometimes, the pain would shoot up into my ear, eyes and temple. There are also times that both sides of my tongue become painful. I also feel burning sensations in my mouth. The dentist said he cannot see any sign of infection.
Does this sound like a damaged lingual nerve? How long does this usually last? Thanks!
