It's been a year since I have had a crown. I have pain; could this be a cavity?

Pain under crown
often when a tooth is filled or crowned the mere act causes small changes to the internal circulation and health of the tooth. And with time, these small changes lead to the problems you are currently experiencing . This is called pulpitis and with time the pain that you are experiencing will increase and not subside. You should probably treat the tooth with an Endodontist and have a Rootcanal done . Your tooth may calm down for awhile but ultimately the tooth will start to hurt again. But you should treat the tooth with a Rootcanal before your symptoms get worse .
