Painful crown


We will talk about the pain experienced during the dental crown treatment. During this procedure, a number of reasons can cause pain, and we will try to bring some of them closer to you. When the tooth is beyond repair, when the pulp is invaded by the decay, the procedure called root canal treatment is performed. Root canal is also done if the tooth is chipped for some reason. Because of the decay, tooth is very delicate and fragile and fractures can easily happen, which is why dental crown is put. There are many possible causes for the dental crown treatment, and we will talk about several of them.


As we have mentioned, bad root canal procedure can cause the pain in question. If the whole pulp tissue is not removed, pain can be felt after the root canal treatment. During this treatment, filling can expand to the periapical region, which will produce pain felt as if it is coming from the crown, but in fact, it will be coming from the tooth.

There is also a possibility that the crown located on the gingiva impinges. This impingement may be slight or slow, since this occurs when the crown is present for a longer period of time. It can make the surface of the tooth wide open and easy to harm, and in this way, the tooth will become more sensitive to cold and hot items.

Problem can occur if the crown is not properly placed, because it will cause the crown's overextension, which will lead to the gums impingement and eventually to the swelling of the gums. The area of the tooth that is prepared can be exposed if the crown is small in height, and pain, swelling of the gums and gathering of the microorganisms and particles will follow.

The crown can be prepared just right, but it can also be improperly prepared, which usually happens because of the bad impression of the tooth, faulty cast or if the surface of the tooth is fractured during the manufacture. Flossing can also bring tooth crown pain.

Crowns will demand more care since they do not tolerate particles gathered around. Gingival tissue can be injured sometimes and this can produce pain and bleeding of the gums. We have given you several most common causes for the dental crown pain. Remember that, if you are experiencing this or any other kind of pain, you should seek medical attention. They will see what the problem is and treat it accordingly.
