If a new crown bite is off Can it injure the tooth below it? I had a top molar crown put on about two weeks ago and now both top and bottom molars are at times a bit sensitive to bite and the bottom molar is a titch achy.

Hi Sarah77,
It is unlikely to damage the lower molar but if it does not settle rapidly, you might want to get your dentist to check it as he may adjust the bite to make sure the forces applied are acting in the right way when you grind your teeth.
