My permanent crown is aching after a root canal treatment done a couple of months ago, for an infection above it in my gums.

Should I consult my endodontist?

It's possible that your bite is off an the crown needs to be adjusted. However, another possibility is that the tooth has become reinfected, requiring retreatment. I would recommend seeing your dentist to have the tooth evaluated. I hope this helps.  Click on the save button below my name, if you have any direct questions for me in the future.
