Why are my crowns sensitive?

My advice for you would be to return to your dentist for an evaluation. Often times, a simple bite adjustment will fix the issue. However, if you are still experiencing the same symptoms after having your bite adjusted, root canal treatment may be necessary. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

Preparing teeth for crowns may exacerbate an existing chronic inflammation in a tooth. In addition, one of the risks of have a crown is temporary or permanent damage to the tooth nerve that may require root canal treatment. You may experience sensitivity in a tooth that you thought was OK before the crown. I suggest getting your tooth evaluated by your dentist to determine the cause of the sensitivity. Good luck
