Re: Tooth Pain Under a Bridge
How soon after having the bridge inserted did the pain start??
A cold test will tell you if your nerve is dying. Often, a tooth will hurt from trauma, in which the periodontal ligament becomes inflamed. This ligament surrounds the tooth and isf very different from the nerve inside the tooth.
Have your dentist check your bite. You might be banging on one tooth alot harder than you used to causing the pain you're feeling. If it's the PDL and the bite is adjusted it will get better in a matter of a day or two.
If the nerve is the culprit.. well, you know the drill (no pun intended) another root canal..
by the way.. root canaled teeth sometimes need to be retreated. What did the x-ray show for the roots of both teeth holding your bridge?
