There is a pain that can be excruciating, a toothache. #smilewithconfidence Often some think a dental crown can spare the pain, that’s not always the case. Tooth crown pain exists. If you have or are experiencing pain around a crown, new or established, it needs to be dealt with before you ever can find relief. Veneers Gilbert AZ
Causes of Tooth Crown Pain
A crown can cause pain for a number of different reasons. When a crown is placed before a root canal procedure has been to done, it could be putting pressure on the nerve. If the bite (occlusion) is not perfectly lined, anyone who grinds their teeth during sleep can experience pain from pressing down on high spots or areas where the tooth may be higher than it should be. Previous fillings can also cause pain, especially those that are made from silver. Leakage can occur that leads to bacteria infecting the nerve root. Veneers Gilbert AZ
Treatment at Home
One of the first steps is to figure out if you are grinding your teeth at night. This is called bruxism. If you do this, you will have symptoms like tight, painful jaw muscles when waking, pain that lasts longer or even swelling in the lower part of the face or jaw. The most obvious? A grinding sound during sleep. #martindental
Generic mouth guards can provide some relief, even medications to reduce stress and anxiety can be taken. A warm and moist washcloth can help to relax the jaw muscles as well.
