Too many problems with crown

User Level:
Posted by: 41based14  (10 years ago)
Hi all!

Most of my teeth were crowned five years ago. Since then I have had nothing but problems. I’ve got a lot of pain and sensitivity. The sensitivity toothpaste does not seem to be of much help. I had already replaced some crowns, had root canals, crown lengthening and posts but the pain and sensitivity did not go away. I have already spent too much money and time for my teeth but I still get a lot pain and discomfort. I am now considering having all my teeth pulled and get dentures. Anyone out there who had dentures? Were you satisfied with it? Did you not regret getting your teeth pulled? I’m so sick and tired of what I am going through. I truly regret getting all those crowns. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hello 41based14,

Do not choose to have your teeth extracted especially after having spent so much money and effort trying to save them. Dentures are nothing similar to natural teeth. They hardly look natural and do not give you the same chewing ability. Dentures have to be relined approximately every four years because with our teeth gone our jaw bone slowly change and bone gets resorbed. So getting dentures won't stop the money spending. Now-a-days they do implant supported lower dentures where they put two implants on your lower jaw followed by dentures so that they do not pop-out while you are eating or talking.

Did you get any relief in the teeth where you had RCT and then crown put on? You may seek a second opinion to try to find out what is causing you so much discomfort with the crowns.
Do not give up on your teeth consider seeking another opinion from a recommended dentist.
