How effective are pulp caps in preventing root canal? Had decay under an old crown. We only knew because it started to ache. A little cold sensitive but faded quickly. The dentist said cavity was deep but didn’t reach the nerve. so i had the procedure done this morning and a new temp crown put on. curious because I’ve never had one before.

Also, how long should one expect to feel sore after crown prep? No pain on bite. Just generally achy. Wondering when I need to start panicking. ;)

I'd expect the soreness to be fading after a couple of days.
