You may need an adjustment of your crown ... #DrSarahThompson #STL
I would recommend trying to get an adjustment of the crown or the opposing tooth. Most of the time, if a patient has pain after a crown is placed, it means that their bite may need to be adjusted very slightly. This slight adjustment can be the difference between throbbing pain and complete comfort. I hope this helps.
