Root canal and crown pain: I had a root canal and crown put on about 1-1/2 years ago.
Last week I started getting severe pain on that crown and now can not eat anything on that side.
Hot or cold liquids are also painful to endure.
I went back to the dentist yesterday. X-rays were taken and he does not know why this is hurting so bad. Do not know what to do. In a lot of pain. ...Visitor from Minnesota
The best resource for a tissue level analysis of what is going on... and why.... is a Periodontist.
Their diagnostic skills typically outstrip what many General Dentists can diagnose... by virtue of their available technologies and experience.
Ideally, your dentist would have referred you already.
Having an obvious treatment condition or need.... without a diagnosis is considered unacceptable by most accomplished dentists and specialists.
