Pain after crowns

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: luigi99  (10 years ago)
Hello,

My front top teeth were a bit crooked. Five months ago, I got crowns put on these teeth for cosmetic purposes. A week after they were replaced, I got pain in my lower teeth. The dentist said this is normal because my bite was changed and that the pain will go away. It has been five months and the pain is still there. I have been on painkillers every day. Three days ago, tooth #8 started to get massive pain. The tooth has a crown on it. I took pain pills but it didn’t help. The pain seems to be coming from the inner part of the tooth. My lower teeth are still painful as well. How can I get the pain to go away? Does anyone know what could be wrong? Any help would be highly appreciated.

This is why it is wise to solve esthetic problems orthodontically, and avoid crowns on teeth if at all possible. The nerves of one or more crowned teeth are inflamed or necrotic, and you will need root canal(s). Probably pain is being referred to you lower teeth, but it may also be because of your bite was deepened when the crowns were placed.
