Uncomfortable temporary crown

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: catipu  (9 years ago)
My second molar tooth on the upper left hand side has been sensitive for several months. The tooth was crowned three years ago. Last month, the sensitivity became unbearable and the tooth ached terribly.

The dentist performed a root canal through the crown. During the procedure, the crown of the tooth was broken. The dentist said there was no fracture below the gum line and that it was only the crown that was broken. He decided to change the old crown. After the temporary crown placement, the gum around the tooth has always been sore and tender. My bite feels off as the crown feels extremely high. My dentist would only be available for me in two weeks.

Any tip/suggestions on how to deal with the uncomfortable temporary crown until I can see my dentist? I would be grateful for any help.

It needs to be adjusted NOW. It is incredible that the dentist left no other dentist for his patients' emergencies.

By the way, it is common for porcelain crowns to break on second molars, especially when a root canal is done. This is another reason why it is more prudent to have all-metal crowns on second molars, like I have in my own mouth.
