: I had a temporary crown put on one week ago. Although the dentist did most of the preparation the dental hygenist actually put the temporary crown on. I returned two days later in excruciating pain. I could not bite down at all. Actually, it didn't hurt so much when I bit down as it did when I released. He took the temporary crown off, said the bite was off, worked some more on it, then put it back on. That was five days ago and the pain is almost unbearable. Now it is a constant ache and throbbing. I've been living on motrin. What should I do and why am I having so much pain?
Thanks Bonnie. I tried to get into see the dentist, but he's off this week. Something strange happened since my first posting though. The night before last I couldn't sleep on my back as I usually do (hurt my back slightly) so I slept on my side. When I woke up no pain at all. It was amazing - like someone turned off the switch. But last night when I rolled over on my back for just a few seconds, bam the pain came back in an instant and even though I rolled back over on my side; the pain was unrelenting. What could cause that. I'm going to call first thing next week to see the dentist, but would like your opinion. Thanks again
