i have a crown, but the tooth is hurting after two months

i had a crown put on a fracterd molar;after a root canel.but two months later;it start giving me pain.I went back to my dentist and he took
xrays;but it showed nothing;that might be the problem.
I would like to know if the fractured molar could be the problem;even though it was two months ago

sounds to me as if not all the nerve wasnt taken out ?

its happened to me and i am waiting to get it sorted out ,so if your dentist cannot see it ask him to refer you to a specialist

if the nerve has been taken out you wouldnt experience pain

Re: i hava crown; but the tooth is hurting after two months

i have had this problem for 5 years. the root canal was fine but the tooth fractured to the root.this can happen before, during, or after the root canal. there are two solutions either they can drill thru the jawbone and try to remove the tiny left over nerve piece thats normally left behind since it still viable but will cause pain if theres a root fracture or you can have it pulled. i opted for neither choice and am living with it. there is a good chance that someday it will become infected and need to be removed but right now it only hurts periodically and its cold/hot sensitive sometimes but i am trying to get my moneys worth out of it since i cant afford an implant.

Re: i hava crown; but the tooth is hurting after two months

I sure would like the answer to that one too. I had a root canal down several years ago on the large bottom molar. It started hurting but dentist said nerve was dead so he said it must be the tooth in front of it even though it didnt indicated anything. He was waiting authorization from the insurance and I guess I was supposed to live with it but instead I went to a specialist. He didn't see anything either but I was miserable. He did a root canal and put in a temporary. I have been going back every few weeks for a change of medicine adn a new temporary. Sometimes I am fine and think ok he can do the permanent and other times I am hurting. I just had it changed out last week and it has been hurting since I went. In fact I will probably call tomorrow. He said last time it must be the tooth in front of it. (my nerves are not in perfect alignment as I had jaw surgery years ago)
This is my question. Do crowns ever need to come off and be reseated? As I age my gums have recended some. Of course there is the metal barrier around it or string, something anyway but what if it were just a tad loose? I feel sometimes like it is seeping or I want to suck spit out of it.
Years ago on the other side of my jaw, I kept telling a former dentist my bridge was loose. He said it wasn't and did a root canal through one of the anchored teeth. I kept hurting, so he kept treating it. I had a low-grade fever so I was on antibiotics. One morning I work up and pushed on the bridge and again thought it shifted. When I went to see him, being the jerk he was, he said I was wrong and to prove it took a tool and hit it. It came right off. The back anchored bridge tooth was complete mush. He had been doing a root canal on the wrong tooth. He needed to pull it and had a heck of a time because it was so rotted. 2 hours later I felt better than I had in months.
Why couldn't the same thing be happening with the crown? Though drilling through it they would know if was mush or not. Right now, just sucking in air hurts. I can't tell if it is the one the dentist is treating or the large molar. I want them taken off to see.
Any similiar situations?

when i had a bridge same thing was happening to me too,it kept on moving no one would believ e,me kept on saying nothing wrong with it,and got to stage i was in so much pain ,and sore and couldnt eat or sleep,until i gave up on the dentist as he didnt want to know,went some where else ,after trying a few weeks to see if he could find out whats wrong ,he finally told me the bridge had to come out.

i had to pay £1,000 for a new bridge ,when he took old one out ,the dentist told me i was in so much pain etc because it wasnt made right for my mouth ,even though new bridge put in it still moved ,and uncomfortable ,went to several dentists one dentist even chucked me out of his surgury and told me i was mad
i was 5 stone in weight by this time ,when finally i saw a dentist who listened and believed i had a problem ,but admited she couldnt find it,she sent me to a specialist ,it cost me to see them butit was worth the money.

he done certain xrays etc and straight away exactly what i was telling dentist he said was wrong,i cried ,because at last ,someone has said what ive been saying all along.
he said the bridge had to come out ,and it wasnt because of the dentist iwho put new one in ,it was what damage the first dentist had done,but other dentist ,was trying to cover up for other dentist grrrrr

i tried suing the first dentist but got a stupid solicitor who didnt have a clue ,she tried suing al the dentists i seen
didnt get anywhere either i couldnt afford to carry on ,and sadly the dentist who helped me died ,so had to find a new dentist

believe me ,my name is black now ,every dentist i go to have damaged my teeth ,i even walked out on one woman dentist ,doing same teeth all the time cost me a fortune,then she damaged my strong bottom teeth,now im having lot of problems ,how i wished i had the courage to walk out earlier

i wished i never tried suing the dentist now ,as i never got anywhere but all i wanted was to recover the money i lost with the treatment and other costs due to having a breakdown because of the bridge
and all i get now is no help from any dentist as soon as they get my name on computewr and go there ,they try to get rid of me or hope i go some where else
even the hospitals not helpful either towards me .people didnt believe me at first how i get treated ,but they have started to now

i just want someone to put my teeth right ,as much as they can so i'm not in any more pain or discomfort thats all i ask

Re: i hava crown; but the tooth is hurting after two months

It sounds like you have been through a lot too. My bridge couldn't be replaced because I no longer had an anchor tooth. I did not want an implant.
The more I think about it the more I want the dentist to pop off the crowns on the two teeth and check them. It wouldn't surprise me if one of the teeth were fractured.
