Temporary Crown Pain
I was hoping someone could give me some advice about a temporary crown. I had a temporary crown placed a week ago due to a cracked tooth. It felt fine for two days, then I started getting a throbbing pain under my tooth and jaw. I have been taking ibuprofen daily. I was taking it every 4 hours, but I have recently only had to take it every 12 hours due to the pain, so I guess things might be getting better, but I still have persistent throbbing pain under the tooth if I try to go all day without ibuprofen. It is moderately sensitive if I bite down on it, but not much sensitivity to hot/cold. I went back to my dentist yesterday and had the temporary shaved down a little because she said it was too high, which was causing the pain. I have not noticed much relief since then. Do these symptoms seem consistent with post-temporary crown recovery and I should just be patient, or should I be concerned? Thanks!
