Is it normal to have face pressure and intermittent pain right after having a crown adjusted? The tooth already had a root canal
Doctor Answers 2
Pain after root canal'ed crown was adjusted...
1) You may need your crown adjusted again, because if your crown is ever-so-slightly high, then it can cause tremendous pain from the unbalanced bite. A simple re-adjustment may eliminate the pain.
2) You may need a retreat of your root canal. It is possible that there is still some nerve or decay still left in the tooth root that a second root canal could remove.
Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
