    Got another question....pressure when biting

    I had an onlay done on 18 about 3 weeks ago. It was a deeper cavity so the onlay was supposed to give it more strength. It's sensitive to cold which I was told will be normal for a while. Other than that it's fine except when I bite on something the right way.

    I can clench my teeth and it's fine. I can grind around and it's fine. No sweet or heat sensitivity. I can chew sometimes and it's fine. It has to be that there is food being chewed and it has to be the right way and then I'll feel this pressure on a certain area of the tooth. I can push around on the tooth in all directions and not feel it. I doesn't hurt bad when it does it, but enough to make me release and think, hmmm, shouldn't do that.

    I am having problems with an impacted 17 and thought maybe that's part of it, but something tells me it's not.

    Someone please tell me I didn't spend all that money fixing it only to have it have a crack and have to be pulled after less than a month. IF it does have a crack does it sound like it might be able to be saved? Wouldn't a vertical crack be more painful than this?

    An onlay is supposed to prevent something like that, right? The only thing I was warned about was that being a deeper cavity, it could always turn into needing rct.

    It sounds like it has a crack. A crown usually takes care of the problem. Sometimes a root canal may be needed if the crown wasn't enough, then they would just do that through the crown. When the tooth doesn't have temperature sensitivity, throbbing, or constant pain with biting, it usually doesn't warrant a Root canal. If you don't want to do the crown and possibly but yourself some time, you could try having the tooth taken out of bite so that you don't hit it as hard when biting. Hope the was helpful.

    Thanks. It was. I'll have my dentist check it out when I go in for a cleaning...which is right after I heal from these wisdom teeth extractions.
