Tooth Pain After 1.5 Months Of Dental Crown Placement?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The placement of dental crowns is generally performed by doctors as a restoration procedure for teeth where the crown has been left so little that it is not possible to do regular fillings. After placing the crown, you still have to take good care of your teeth and mouth. If not, then either the crown material itself, or the tooth where the crown is attached will be eroded and eventually trigger pain. This pain can be mild or intense. It could also be, pain arises due to infection radiating from the side of the tooth (periodontal) that reaches the root of the tooth. Or, maybe the pain you feel actually arises from somewhere else, not from the teeth itself, for example due to disorders of the jaw joint, migraines, trigeminal neuralgia, and so on.
If the tooth pain you feel is very severe, and it does not improve with taking medication from a doctor, you should check with the dentist where you had previous treatment. Chances are, the doctor will do some supporting tests, such as x-rays, to find out the cause of your pain, along with how to best treat it.
You can do the following tips so that your tooth pain is relieved:
Take pain relievers as prescribed by your doctor
Avoid contact between the aching tooth and foods or drinks that are too hot or too cold
Also avoid chewing food too hard around the sore tooth
Brush your teeth in the morning, evening, and at night before bed with fluoride toothpaste
Gargle with an antiseptic mouthwash
Get plenty of rest, first limit exposure to excessive noise so that pain does not continue to recur and recur
Hope it helps ..
