How does this service work? how does this service work? I
I got a crown on a cracked molar about 14 months ago. The tooth never settled in... always felt discomfort, pressure discomfort, and strong cold sensitivity. About a month ago it changed to pain with pressure, plus heat sensitivity. Saw my dentist, he recomended root canal. Just had my root canal today. About 4 hours after finishing, my crown popped off in my mouth, just as I was sitting doing work on my laptop. Came right off with a flick of my tongue. Just got back from the endodontist who put a new temp filling in and re-cemented the crown. But when the crown was off, I could see that the surface of the tooth and the inside surface of the crown was black and splotchy in many places. So here's my question - what the heck? Is it possible that my crown 14 months ago was never sealed properly, which led to the prolonged discomfort and ultimate need for a root canal? Is the black coloring a sign of food and drink and saliva working in under the crown? I have a number of photos I took before getting it recemented this afternoon. … read more

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
