Toothache after permanent crown #DrSoftTouch
The dull ache you are experiencing may go away or it may eventually require a root canal. I would recommend giving the tooth time to heal for a month. During that time, if the pain gets progressively worse then a root canal will be indicated. I hope this helps. Click "save" under my name, if you'd like to ask me more questions in the future.
