I recently got a permanent crown (which didn't involve a root canal) put on one of my bottom molars. Things were fine with it for the first week, but lately it's been hurting quite a bit (sometimes also making my ear ache as well).
This pain is especially amplified at night (making it very hard to sleep). When I wake up, the pain seems to go away, but slowly gets worse throughout the day after eating or chewing (and climaxes at night). I feel that the bite might be off on the outer side of the tooth. Would this much pain match up to the bite being too high?
Could the tooth have been agitated during the crowning process to the point where the nerve is dying?
I'm gonna call my dentist about the problem tomorrow morning...
Thanks in advance for the help!
