I had two molars (#3 and #30) RCT and crowned about two months ago. Both are sensitive to flossing and tapping. Does this mean both have failed? Or do I just have to wait for them to settle? I’m terrified…again!

Go back to your dentist to get the bite checked, also if they're sensitive to flossing there maybe a bit of cement left that needs pinged off :)
