Sensitivity after root canal and #crown #DrSoftTouch
It's not uncommon to experience some discomfort for a few weeks after a root canal and crown. Since you are experiencing sensitivity a month and a half post op, it's important to see your dentist for an evaluation. There are a number of possible causes of your pain. The tooth could have a small fracture in it, root canal treatment is failing, or the new crown could still be high (another bite adjustment would be necessary). Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
