PAIN AFTER CROWNING OF THE TOOTH

Posted by: rajukb  (9 years ago)
HI,
i has a root canal surgery one week back, yesterday the crowning of the tooth was done. but the new crown is slightly pressing on the adjacent tooth, due to which i'm feeling some pain in the adjacent teeth. Is this a normal thing or is it a problem.

Hi,
Crowns in most cases are recommended on account of a broken tooth. If the tooth crown fixing procedure fails to be done proper, such happenings might lead to Tooth Pain After Tooth Crowning. In any such instances, the procedure needs to be redone to fix the pain. You might be needing other procedures like tooth fillings or root canal, if the tooth condition is worse than the first diagnosed. THanks

With any new crown, the object is to have solid enough interproximal contacts so food will not be entrapped; but light enough so you can get floss between your teeth. If you can floss between the crowned tooth and the one next to it, the contact is not too tight.

Overly=tight contacts usually self-adjust in time. However, I have never had a contact so tight that it caused pain. It may be that you have an unrelated problem in the adjacent tooth.

Good post Dr Henry. Also, after the crown sets about a week, the dentist may need to finish the occlusal adjustment (or, file down the teeth). I'd recommend finding a Dentist with a T-scan (a little self-promotion there obviously) so they can do this more accurately. This will ensure that your bite is well balanced and that you do not have too much force or pre-mature contact on any individual tooth, especially the crown. Good luck!

This seems to be a normal symptoms which generally occurs after root canal surgery. Don't worry though, take a pain killer and have some rest. It will improve on its own gradually.
