Re: Help with crown issue
There is no mystery here. It is a cause and effect relationship. If you did not have this problem befoe you had the crown placed, and now you do, it is the dentists responsibility to solve it to your satisfaction. It is your right to have it addressed and correcte to your satisfaction. Do not accept excuses.
The crown may need to be re-done. The contact may be too light as well as maybe open. This needs to be determined for sure.
However- every time you mess with a tooth by cutting and pulling and hitting and applying chemical agents such as dental materials, you are affecting the nerve inside the tooth. As a result of these, a root canal treatment may be necessary at any time during, or after the procedure. There is usually never only one answer for anything involving teeth. And reactions are often difficult to predict for certain. We just know that it does happen...
The fact is, if you have a problem after the crown was placed, it is the dentists responsibility to address that to your satisfaction. Check contacts. Check overhangs or open margins. Check for rough surfaces or improper crown contours. It could be a lotof things.
You should not have to "live with it" as you say.
Good luck to you.
