I had temporary crowns placed experienced 3 weeks of pressure sensitivity.  Could not chew anything at all on that side.  Now the permanent went in on Wednesday afternoon.  I have constant pain.  Feeling constant pressure on gums especially on cheek side of bridge!!  Dr. is saying it probably needs to be removed he thinks it might be an allergic reaction to the materials or cement used in the bridge.  I am prone for allergies.  But I really feel it was placed too strongly against the gums.  I can not get floss under bridge like I am supposed to.  Constant pain, taking pain reliever for 3 1/2 weeks.  Does this sound like the fit needs to be adjusted???

Most likely you experienced a pulpitis during the temporary, and the irritated nerve got worse during the cementation process. The current result is a very angry tooth..... and may go on to an irreversible pulpitis and require a root canal... There is not much to do at this point, except relieve the occlusion as much as possible and hope for the best. There are so many reasons why this could have occurredFortunately today, the highly trained dentists use techniques and materials that can help decrease the possibility of such situation to occur.
