Question:
I had a crown put on 1 1/2 weeks ago. It's all the way in the back on the bottom right side.

When I bite down I get a pain in the tooth. If I push on the side of the tooth I have pain and after the motrin wears off it's a faint throbbing pain.

I went back to the dentist and he said it was too high and shaved it down. It's still bothering me...is this normal? ...Visitor from Charlotte

Answer:
If your bite was indeed corrected with the adjustment..... it may take a few days for the sensitivity to diminish.

If your symptoms seem to be greater in the morning, after waking up, the bite disorder may still exist, perhaps to a lesser degree. There is a remote chance that the build-up process used to prepare the tooth for the crown may be causing nerve and root sensitivity that may indicate the need for a root canal.

Getting a consult from a Prosthodontist would be worthwhile in the event your dentist is unable to resolve the problem. If possible, find a dentist or specialist who has access to the technology demonstrated in this video: http://www.dental--health.com/video_tekscan_occlusal.html.
