Is it normal to have severe pain following having a crown fitted?

Q.
Hi,
I had a crown fitted (the first one I have had done) at the back of my mouth last week and it has been really sore since it was done. My dentist said that it may be a bit sensitive for a while but this is really sore – it wakes me up at night! I have been taking lots of painkillers, which I don’t like to do but it is so sore I don’t really have an option. I’d just like to know if this is normal? – there is no swelling or anything and it really doesn’t look like there is anything wrong. Should I leave it a week or so to see if it settles down or is this not normal!?

I would inform your dentist of your symptoms and he may wish to reexamine you
