In Reply to: Re: Throbbing pain with temporary crown posted by Jen on June 14, 2000 at 21:24:31:

: Perhaps its just a matter of the tooth hitting prematurely. Often times with temps and crowns, the tooth is a little 'high' and when you bite this tooth hits first. Therefore, its subjected to all the biting force and can result in a whole lot of discomfort. If you are hitting early the teeth below will be getting undo trauma as well.
: I'm not sure in what situation you needed the crown. If it was for a deep filling or a fracture, perhaps more work is needed. Hard to tell here. I would certainly call your dentist and speak with him. There should be no need to be taking pain medicine at this point.

Thanks Jen. I suspected this is what was happening. I have only one more week to go, but I definitely mention it to my dentist BEFORE he puts on the permanent. Thanks for the feedback.
