Hi All:

If you can give me your expertise for a quick moment, would be greatly appreciated. I have a tooth that broke, was drilled down, and crowned. As long as I don't chew on it, it is fine. No sensitivity to hot/cold. But once I begin to chew on that side of my mouth, it hurts a bit, and then starts getting sensitive to cold. I quite, and after a day or so, it's all good again.

Does it need a root canal you think, or is something else going on?

Thanks so much for all your help.

You should have had a root canal done before the crown was put on, if your tooth becomes abscessed you will need one for sure and will be stuck with the cost of a new crown. I have had seven root canals done, they are not a big deal, just expensive.

Thank-you for the expertise. It just seems odd the nerve is fine as long as it's not chewed on. Is it that the crown isn't sitting right? Should I just chew on it and see what happens? Or should I avoid chewing on it to allow it to heal further? I just don't know if it will heal at this point or not. Also, I've heard it's possible to have a root canal through the crown - if it comes to that?

What does your dentist have to say about it?

The best thing for you to do is to talk to your dentist and follow his advice.

It is really difficult to say that you should go for root canal or not without seeing your actual condition. I think you should consult to your doctor regarding this.
