Old crown hurt after placement of new crown

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: taraTala  (10 years ago)
I have a crown on my top right first molar for three years now. Two days ago, I got a new crown put on a bottom right first molar, which was cracked a few weeks ago. When the new crown was put on, the old crown on top started to become sore. The newly crowned tooth doesn’t hurt at all. Any idea why this is happening? The old crown did not give me any problem before the new crown was placed. Thank you in advance for any responses.

It is just coincidental. Either that, or the pain from the top is referred from the bottom. You can be sure which if you have the dentist do some tests and x-rays, and perhaps apply selective anesthesia to determine which tooth the pain is coming from.
