I've read all the crown messages. I received a temp crown on my #3 tooth (upper right jaw)about a week ago, and my tooth is still throbbing. If I take an Advil, the pain goes away almost immediately, so I am hoping it isn't serious. I notice that it especially aches when I wake up in the morning. Now, my teeth on the bottom are starting to hurt. Any ideas on what it could be? Should I go back to my dentist immediately? or does anyone else think it would be alright to wait until next week when I go back for my permanent crown? I am hoping it goes away when replaced.
