Why is my new crown extremely sensitive to the cold?


Answer by  Carrie55 (204)

After a matter of hours, the 3-4 nerves in your tooth are still adjusting to the crown. After a few days, the tooth nerves may be touching the crown.

It is not unusual for a new crown to be sensitive to cold for a period of 2 weeks to even 2 months. You should notice it get progressivly better. If it is not improving, see your dentist for him to check it.

This is completely normal and does not indicate that your crown is failing. The temperature sensitivity should fade over time.

When your dentist prepped the tooth he got too close to the nerve. Most likely you will need a root canal to remove the nerve.

It's possible that you may need to use a sensitive toothpaste. However, since it's a new crown, the best thing to do is talk with your dentist.

A new crown being sensitive to the cold isn't anything to be worried about. If it continues to be sensitive after several weeks or is also sensitive to heat, you may need to see a dentist.

You're crown isn't sensitive to the cold, the underlying tooth is sensitive to the cold. The root may be inflamed or dying, see a dentist.

It is due to weakness in your nerves. Nerves must be strengthened. Avoid cool drinks like coke/pepsi even in summer, which will eode your gums. Drind natural tender coconut early morning avoiding coffee and tea after brush, daily for atleast a week. You'll find some solution.
