Dental crowns are pretty common in modern dentistry. They have lots of advantages, including restoring the function and appearance of your teeth. However, tooth sensitivity is one of the most common side effects of having a dental crown. It also is one of the most annoying causes of discomfort and makes chewing difficult. So, in this article, we will talk about why people have sensitive teeth after getting a dental crown and how to avoid it with a dental zirconia crown.
After placing the dental zirconia crown or any other crown, you may experience mild to severe pain or discomfort in one or more teeth. Several symptoms may point to sensitive teeth, including:
· Pain while eating or drinking something with a high temperature or cold temperature.
· Discomfort when consuming sweet or acidic foods and beverages.
· Painful responses to pressure on your teeth, such as biting down or chewing.
The symptoms of sensitive teeth may disappear within a few days. However, if these symptoms persist, it is important to contact your dentist for more information.
Tooth sensitivity after crowning can be caused by several things. The most common cause of tooth sensitivity after a dental zirconia crown or other crown procedure is the size of the crown. A dental crown is supposed to fit over your tooth at all points: no gaps between the crown or the edge of your tooth. If the crown is too big or small, it can create gaps around the edges, causing irritation and sensitivity. Here are other possible causes of tooth sensitivity after having crowns,
lIrritation from the crown and cement – sometimes, the cement used to bond a crown to the tooth can be irritating, leading to sensitivity.
lTooth decay or infection – Tooth sensitivity after a crown can be due to tooth decay underneath, which could develop into an infection under your new crown, which can cause sensitivity.
lBite interference – if your bite becomes misaligned after receiving a crown, it could cause serious problems with your jaw joint, ultimately leading to tooth sensitivity, jaw issues, and additional problems with your teeth.
Tooth sensitivity is no fun at all. As you know, one of the most common causes of tooth sensitivity is an unfitted crown, but this issue can easily be fixed. Here are two solutions to help you to fix this issue.
Use precise dental scanners to make your crowns, rather than the traditional method of taking impressions with a goopy substance and then making molds for casts. Using precise dental scanners will eliminate the human error factor from the process, ensuring that your crown fits perfectly.
Dental zirconia crowns are known for their strength, durability, and quality. They have high biocompatibility and don't cause any allergic reactions. Use a good dental zirconia crown which has a soft cushioning effect on your gums, which allows for a better fit. Crowns made with ceramic zirconia are less likely to cause sensitivity because they don’t conduct heat than metal-based crowns.
