I am having porcelain crowns placed on all but 3 of my teeth.(I seriously neglected my teeth and gums for years) The temporary crowns have been on for about 11 days. I have been having lover jaw pain it is a throbbing pain which sometimes goes up to my ears. It is the worst when i first wake up or when I eat or drink. I went to the dentist today and he tried to adjust the bite,it helped some. He also prescribed some pain meds and a muslce relaxer to help, he thinks I may be clinching my teeth at night. I hope this improves or goes away after the permanent porcelain crowns are placed. I paid a ton of money for this and dont want to have this pain the rest of my life.
he did adjust the bite and it helped some. I was able to actually eat and chew. I hadnt been able to without pain. He did all of the prep work for the crowns in 1 day. I think my teeth are still adjusting. Thanks for your advice.
I went to see my doctor today because I had been having the lower jaw pain and then pain near my ears. I have a chronic sinus infection,very bad they said. So i guess my jaw pain was the sinuses not temp. crowns. Which feel ok now. I get permanent ones on in 7 days. Can't wait to see the new me.
