Question by  Zwiggle (79)

What could be the cause of pain associated with a tooth that has a crown?

I have a new crown that is causing me a great deal of pain, could you please help me out with providing me with what could be causing this.

It could be possible that you've got an infection of the tooth, which happens at times there's nothing to worry about. Consult a dentist, and probably he would ask you to take an x-ray of the tooth and examine it and also give some antibiotics to prevent the infection from further increasing.

My husband had this problem not more than a month ago. It turned out that he had a teeny little cavity that had started under his gums, it progressed into the tooth with the crown. Make sure you go to the dentist as soon as possible, apparently it can get very bad and the tooth can be lost.

1. The crown is not properly placed or insecure, like wobbly car tires. 2. There is an infection. 3. You got a crown, but the cavity reached the root.
