The dental crown must be perfectly fitted to the surface of the tooth and to the gum, which is not always the case in practice. In most cases, such a problem can be detected only when a person feels pain.
Measures to eliminate pain in the tooth under the crown depend on the causes of it. Pain in the tooth under the crown can be observed after the removal of the nerve. A similar phenomenon occurs in cases when the inflammatory process has spread to the gums or deep periodontal tissues in the area where the tooth closed by the crown is located. To relieve pain and relieve inflammation, rinse your mouth with anti-inflammatory herbal infusions, such as Stomatofit. Some dentists advise their patients in such a case to apply a hot egg to the outside of the cheek; physiotherapy prescribed by the doctor is also helpful. The cause of pain may be loosening of the teeth during the use of prostheses. Perhaps your removable dentures are not suitable for you and you need to make new ones. But most often the pain under the crown is felt due to pulpitis or periodontitis, which developed as a result of poor-quality treatment or improper installation of the prosthesis. A poorly fitted prosthesis does not allow full oral hygiene procedures. Food debris that accumulates between the gum and the crown is an excellent breeding ground for pathogenic bacteria, as a result of which a cyst or flux can form. After opening the crown, in these cases, the doctor prescribes a course of antibiotic treatment, no less serious is the treatment of secondary caries. If a patient's tooth decays under the crown, the denture is removed and pulpitis or caries is treated. Then there is a second prosthetics. It is most correct to consult a doctor at the stage when the tooth aches a little under the crown. In this case, the problem can be resolved quickly enough. Moreover, dentists do not always resort to crown removal. The desire to avoid re-prosthetics at all costs is a serious mistake on the part of patients: the tooth should be saved, not the prosthesis.
