Three weeks ago, I had a temporary crown fitted. I then started to get a lot of pain from the tooth, went back to the dentist to have my bite adjusted. The pain did not go away. The dentist gave me antibiotics. About a week ago, the permanent crown was fitted using a temporary cement. Since the pain continued, the dentist removed the crown and performed a canal on the tooth. He then fitted the permanent crown with permanent cement. I still have pain that extends to my ear and jaw. Anyone with similar experience? I’ve read that pain like this is caused by a damaged nerve in the jaw.
How do I make sure that I have nerve damage? Is it curable? Any help would be highly appreciated.
