So two weeks ago I got a permenant crown fitted on an 8yr old root canalled molar (it was only previously filled) it was ok for the first week but then last week was really hurting to chew and getting weird pains up into my cheek /nose area!! Dentist found a high spot and filed it down and then chewing got a lot better ( but still face pressure/pains) so went back to diff dentist this week at scame practise he said that the crown even though had an even bite was still hitting quit hard so he really adjusted bite! Since yesterday I can now chew anything again so it’s solved the chewing pain! However I still have a pretty much constant pain/pressure across cheek & into nose) And I am petrified that the root canal is failing or tooth got cracked somehow getting crowned! Could all the bite probs have caused this face pain or do u think it’s infected! I’m planning to go back again in a few days if it’s still the same but am freaking out that it will have to be extracted or I face a massive cost for a re-root canal that might not work ???
