Pain after crown removal

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: shazz99  (8 years ago)
I had a crown, which was too high and lead to extreme sensitivity to cold. After several adjustments, my symptom did not improve. The dentist suggested having it replaced. Five days ago, the crown was removed and prepped for replacement. When the temporary crown was placed, it was very uncomfortable. When I got home, it fell off. The dentist replaced it. It’s now the fifth day and I am still in pain though the temperature sensitivity was gone. Should I be concerned? Thanks!

High crowns do not cause cold sensitivity. Inflamed nerves do. The next step should be a well-made temporary crown with a cement that seals well. If the tooth is still sensitive, it is root canal time. A crown is the most irritating thing that can be done to a tooth. That is why it should be a last resort.
