Temporary Crown Issue

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: ginger12  (6 years ago)
I just had a root canal completed on Wednesday. it was a two part process and everything went fine. I was referred back to my dentist for a final restoration. Yesterday my dentist and dental assistant fitted me with a temporary crown. The dental assistant had a lot of trouble fitting it so my dentist had to complete the procedure. Now it feels like I have metal in my mouth. I feel it when I chew on the other side of my mouth and also when I talk. Is this normal?

A well-contoured temporary should feel pretty much like any other tooth in your mouth. Could be that the temporary is overcontoured. Return to your dentist and perhaps he can adjust it further.
