I got 2 crowns, back in December. One was hanging over so there was a ledge and the other was contoured badly. I was Obsessed about getting food in under around them. Every time my toung touched them I was sick with anxiety. I flossed like crazy and flossing the ledge caused so much pain.
I ended up going to a prostodontist and having then pulled of, which was very tramutic and paying another 2k to have this done.. just to stop the pain and constant anxiety i had. i figured new good crowns would solve all my problems
Then i kept having horrible constant tingeling in the gums and a ache. on one of my many im not feeling great visits, he blew air on both the teeth and it was determined, since the blowing caused lingering pain on the back tooth i needed a root canal on that tooth.
I couldnt take anymore, being it was now the end of Feb and I have lost 10lbs and havent enjoyed any time with my kids, i was loosing time off work and felt horrible now for months. I decided to pull the tooth... ok the tooth is gone. i though that would for sure solve the problem.
BUT .... the other tooth, with the crown.. its bothering me! the gums are bothering me.. there is an ache .. i cant tell where its coming from. the dentist said my gums look good and that the extraction site is healing good.
So what is the problem?? If i need a root canal or not...The crown gives my anxiety. im nervous to eat on it.. feeling it makes my heart literately palpitate. I dont like the fakeness of it in my mouth. my gums feel tingly all the time. i feel like there is something sitting on my gums all the time all day every day. there is no way i can eat on it.. I am SCARED that i will get food under it or wedged down under the gum..i cant loose another tooth.. i dont know what to do.
I dont think ill every be able to eat a decent meal again...
i was wondering if there are other people who felt this way and how they overcame it.
