After Having A Crown Fitted I Now Have A Pulsing Sensation Every Time I Eat. Why Is This?

Q.
I went to the dentist last week to have a crown fitted on my right lower 6. I’ve had root canal on that tooth already so there is no nerve, I’ve never had pain before but I’m now having pain every time I eat and a pulsing sensation all the time. The dentist did have to resize it several times before cementing.  I think it’s still too high as my bite is not the same as it was before. Do you know whether this pain will settle? Or am I just being a wimp?  I hate going to the dentist but I don’t know how to describe the pain to the dentist and I know there should be no pain as there is no nerve! I also keep wanting to grind my teeth. Any ideas on what I can do?
A.
Please go back to your dentist to have it re-assessed or get a second opinion, as soon as possible if you’re in pain. Sounds like it could be a bite problem but you’ll need some special tests and an examination to diagnose the problem, find a dentist you feel is capable and one which you feel comfortable with. Talk to your dentist about your grinding also as you may need a mouth guard. Dr Mark Hughes.
