My dentist advised that the crown should be replaced due to decay under the crown.
After the prep for the new crown, the temp crown caused pain and irritation to my gums. When i went to have the permanent crown placed and the temp was removed I felt instant relief. My dentist then did some more drilling to the tooth near the gum line and then placed the permanent crown.
I have had trouble with the tooth and gums since then. The pain increased in the gums at first and then the tooth. I had the bite adjusted but it did not help.
I can chew on the tooth. The pain seems to be from where the crown meets the gum. Very tender when I touch it with my finger.
