Traumatizing a tooth during final cementation of a crown
It is possible that your tooth was further traumatized during the final cementation of the permanent crown. Whenever a tooth is worked on, it causes stress to the nerve. If you currently have pain upon biting, have your dentist check your bite and continue to adjust it until it feels comfortable to you. If the symptoms do not resolve, it may mean that you need a root canal. Either way, it's important for you to go back to your dentist asap to have this taken care of.
