I had a crown put on 17 months ago, and only recently began feeling a dull pain when biting, which my dentist says will be fixed by his bite adjustment. It’s been a week, and the tooth is slowly feeling better, but every now and again when eating something, I can still feel a twinge in it. Definately not a sharp pain, as in when I had initially cracked it before the crown.
Anyone ever been through this? How long does it take to heal completely? X rays were taken, and he’s pretty sure there’s no new crack/decay, etc., and no abcess was present on the X ray.
He said give it some time to heal unless it gets worse, but I don’t know what ‘time” meant. He wasn’t really clear. 2 weeks? 2 months? Should I assume if it keeps getting better, slowly, or at least doesn’t get any worse in the next week or two, it’s progressing ok?
Please respond if you've been through this before.
Thanks for your help!
