Yes, I would like to know why it is happening and what I can to relieve the pain. I will clarify more about thwat happened. I had a filling in that tooth that broke and came out about 3 months ago. He felt that it came out because of a faulty job because others came out done by this pevious dentst. The dentist then x-rayed the tooth can said that they decay wasn't to the root but he would have to put a crown on it to protect it from further decay. Last Friday, I went in and he clean out the decay and drilled it down. He then put on one temporary crown on that back tooth. That was all the work that was done on that tooth. Three days later, I started having severe pain in the front teeth on that same side of my mouth. I thought it was just from bighting on the treated tooth but the pain has gotten worse. Yesterday, I went and he adjusted the crown because he thought it was because it was too large and I was hitting it when I bite. Last night the pain became so severe that I couldn't sleep. I took tylenol which was no relief and applied ice packs and so on. Also, on they front tooth it hurt when I bite on it. I hope that is more understanding. The pain is terrible!
