Why Is My Tooth Sensitive 6mo After Root Canal?
#2 always felt a little off, it got much, much, better when the bite was fixed and I figured it d continue to improve. I chewed there on Wednesday and at first it was fine but it got worse the more I chewed (note, all I ate was a 1oz bag of Cheetos).
Applying any chewing (or even with tongue or finger) pressure on the part of the tooth where #1 used to be causes pain that goes away as soon as the stimulus is removed but it is much more noticeable than before.
I know the original RCT dealt with three canals if that makes a difference.
Is this a symptom of a bad crown? Could it be excess cement? Could it be a cracked tooth? Would having this crown removed and a new one placed likely help or am I looking at losing the tooth? I don t have much money left to deal with this as I ve pretty much exhausted my emergency fund dealing with poor dentistry over the past year and I don t know where to turn as I am above the poverty line but don t make much working for a nonprofit.
