I had a root canal on April 15 on a tooth that was suspected of having a crack - although that has never been confirmed.
After the root canal I was fine. On April 30 I went in to have the temp filling replaced with the permanent filling. Since then I have definetely had some feeling in the vicinity of that tooth. Last night I think I clenched down on the tooth while asleep and the pain of that actually woke me up!!
Is the crown going to fix this? What if the crack is below the gum line? Will the crown still help?
I'm not sure why the pain after the permanent filling but none before. Maybe she did more drilling than the endo did during the root canal and that made the crack worse?
Any feedback would be appreciated.
