I had a crown replaced on tooth #3 this past August- tooth does not have a root canal. I recently went for a cleaning and the dentist said the crown wasn’t shaped right as food kept getting stuck in a crevice and she offered to remake the crown for me at no cost. I went this past Saturday to get the crown cut off (which took dentist a while) and temporary crown put on. I have noticed a few days later I have pain in the tooth which gets worse at night and wake up having to take Advil, could it be that this tooth is dying? I did notice the tooth was very sensitive when they put the crown on and off.
