Severe Pain After Dental Crown Placement

A dental crown is a cap placed on top of a damaged or filled tooth to protect it from any pressures and support it to perform its functional tasks perfectly, especially during speaking and eating. Dentists often resort to placing the crown in cases suffering from decay or cracks in the tooth structure after stabilizing the filling in the cavity.

Placing the crown is one of the easiest techniques applied in dental clinics and centers, characterized by the absence of side effects during and after its placement. Therefore, feeling severe pain afterwards indicates a problem or complication that requires consulting the treating doctor for examination, diagnosis, and prescribing the appropriate treatment.

The likely causes of pain include pressure of the crown on the gum, the appearance of gaps between the crown and the surrounding teeth, nerve inflammation, or tooth sensitivity. These causes require receiving treatment as soon as possible to avoid serious complications later that are difficult to control.

What You Need to Know About Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a type of dental prosthetics resorted to by many doctors as part of the procedures to solve problems of tooth decay, damage, cracks, and fractures. The crown is a covering placed on the surface or top of weakened teeth that have lost a large part of their structure or cavity; to provide them with the hardness and strength that helps in chewing food well, correct pronunciation of letters and words while speaking, in addition to maintaining the natural shape of the tooth.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Crowns?

There are many types of dental crowns, as mentioned in one of the previous titles in the article, and each type offers many advantages to all patients. Let’s learn about the advantages of the different types of dental crowns in the following lines:

  • Providing strength and hardness to weak, damaged teeth such as gold, zirconia, and E-max crowns.
  • Not affected by changes that occur in the mouth and last for many years with the patient like gold, E-max, and zirconia crowns.
  • Do not require removing a large part of the affected tooth cavity and maintaining its structure somewhat strong like gold, porcelain, and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
  • Restoring teeth like gold and porcelain crowns.
  • The attractive, streamlined appearance similar to natural teeth like porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, zirconia, and E-max crowns.
  • The modest cost like porcelain-fused-to-metal crown.

Disadvantages of Dental Crowns

The many advantages of dental crowns mentioned above do not deny the presence of some side effects when placing the crown for some cases. Let’s learn about these disadvantages in the following points:

  • The high cost of some types such as E-max and porcelain crowns.
  • Some types are not suitable for all teeth in the mouth like the E-max crown, which suits the front teeth only.
  • Wearing of the crown structure and weakening of the teeth over time like zirconia, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and porcelain crowns made from porcelain.
  • The unsuitable or mismatched appearance of some types with natural teeth like gold and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
  • The appearance of allergy symptoms, gum swelling, and nerve inflammation when placing the gold crown due to the negative impact of gold material on the mouth environment.
  • The crown falling off the tooth surface due to not using a sufficient amount of adhesive material or not considering the patient’s tooth measurements.
  • The crown size being larger than the tooth size, giving a chance for bacteria to grow in the gap between them.

What Are the Expected Results After Dental Crown Placement?

It is expected that the patient will continue to feel some numbness after placing the crown, and the anesthesia symptoms may last for 24 hours after placement. The patient needs two or three days to fully recover from any swelling symptoms or inability to move the jaw or difficulty swallowing and stuttering when speaking. Therefore, doctors recommend drinking water

only and liquids and eating soft foods within a week after placing the crown, then after that, the patient can eat all foods and drinks and live his life normally.

And the patient feels an improvement in the affected tooth that had a crown placed over time, and its ability to perform functional tasks from chewing food well and reducing the chance of indigestion after that, and correct speaking and pronunciation of phonemes properly. Our specialized and interested team at The Dental Center will work with you step by step to ensure your comfort and complete confidence in your treatment.

Reasons for Pain After Dental Crown Placement

It is rare for any side effects to appear after placing a dental crown due to its high-quality effectiveness, ease of placement, and the safety of the materials used in its placement and all its procedures and steps. However, some cases may feel severe pain after its placement, which can be attributed to the following reasons:

  • Not completely removing the nerve in cases that required nerve filling before placing the crown, causing pain in the tooth afterwards.
  • Eating hard foods that cause pressure on the crown immediately after placement before the patient adapts and gets used to it in his mouth.
  • Consuming cold and hot drinks and foods causing nerve sensitivity.
  • Tooth sensitivity towards some raw materials manufactured for the crown such as gold and different metals.
  • Damage and breakage of the tooth after placing the crown or not using a sufficient amount of adhesive material, leading to the crown falling off.
  • Bacterial growth in the gap between the crown and the tooth in case their measurements do not match each other.

How to Maintain Dental Crowns

There are some medical guidelines that doctors insist patients follow during the period following the crown placement to ensure its success and treat the problems the patient suffers from. These instructions can be summarized as follows:

  • Avoid sticky foods that may stick with the crown especially immediately after placement, which negatively affects it or causes it to move from its place.
  • Reducing hard foods that may cause severe pressure on the crown surface and trying to chew food on the other side.
  • Not using the jaw containing the crown in opening and cutting hard objects.
  • Brushing teeth daily with the appropriate toothpaste prescribed by the doctor.
  • Using dental floss and a toothpick daily at least once to remove any deposits or impurities on the tooth surface.
  • Making sure to rinse with oral antiseptic before going to sleep.
  • Committing to attend all follow-up sessions with the doctor, and we at The Dental Center provide you with the optimal experience and personal care to ensure you achieve wonderful and natural results.
