I got a temp crown put on last Thursday, hurt like heck after Novocaine wore off, been taking Tylenol ibuprofen on and off since
5 months ago
Went back yesterday (7 day after) and she shaved it down a bit.. on day 8 and I'm still in pain! Do you think I will need root canal or will is get better. IM sick of taking so much medicine, it isn't good for my body and if I don't take every 3 hours I'm in pain! She said by next week it should be better.. she's pretty positive but IDK what to believe. I'm so so K of being in pain

it is not uncommon be having pain after your crown placement. minor sensitivity for a week is common. But if your symptoms are not improving after that and you must take pain Meds, than you will need a rootcanal . It's an easy procedure for an endodontists.
