I have a crown that is 5yrs old… recently have had uncomfortable feeling around the tooth. Its not really painful but can feel a pulse around the tooth and gums. Seen dentist and had x ray… said it was just that I am grinding and bite needed adjusting. had teeth cleaned and polished and was on anti biotics incase of infection. but still feels uncomfortable… can you help please
There is not enough pain to be that worried but cannot be right that I can feel pulse all the time.There is no or very little bleeding around the tooth, but when I tap the crown, it does feel uncomfortable, but not excessively painful.
I have 3 crowns all together on left side upper mouth, also have 1 same side lower mouth.
