It is a daunting task to get a dental treatment, but what’s more frightening is the need to take care of the teeth after the treatment. Soon after, the teeth may begin to hurt again at times. A person may even feel pain under the crown. The culprit of this throbbing pain can be bacteria-filled in the gums
Bacteria-causing pain under the crown
The dentists place the crowns on top of teeth to protect and fill up space in a tooth. However, after dental treatments such as root canals and fixtures, the crown may shift, exposing the dental stub. The stubs have a connection to the dental nerves and therefore can experience similar problems that other teeth do. In the case of exposed tooth stubs, bacteria may spread in the stub, and you would experience toothache under the crown.
Substantial bacteria under the crown leads to tooth decay. Therefore, the first thing to do is to set an appointment with a dentist. The pain in the tooth with a crown at times may become unbearable. At such a state, visit the dentist right away and ask for the treatment.
Treatment and prevention
The dentist, after his/her analysis, will start the procedure and take off the crown. He/she will then clean up the area and insert a new crown. At times due to severe bacteria, a tooth may decay entirely and may require the dentist to extract the tooth.
Since the area under the crown cannot be cleaned at home, it is essential to visit a dentist at Sair Dental Group who can regularly check your teeth and provide appropriate treatment so you may not need to go through the pain of tooth extraction.
