Pain when biting down with new crown

I recently had a permanent crown put on one of my back molars. My tooth has been sensitive to certain things when the temporary was on there, but not the biting down part of it. When my dentitst was trying to fit my crown on and get the bite rite before she finally cemented it on, whenever she would put the crown on my tooth, I would get the pain, but then it would go away. She kept taking it off and on about 4 times. Now would all the work of just putting the permanent crown on, make my tooth sensitive when I am biting down on stuff? I am find with most things, except for the hard stuff, like chips or peanuts and it has only been three days, should I give it more time? Does my bite need to be adjusted? She did adjust the crown some before she finally cemented it down. Any advice?

Not an Answer but I am having the same problem , my dentist didn't do an root canal either for a back tooth on the right side lower law area, I can't chew at all on it without pain on my permanent crown, I didn't have a problem on the temp crown from like 12pm to 1:30 pm it was still hurting today, was crewing some dentist gum they had their that started the pain, but anyway they adjusted the permanent crown this week and still is hurting, I hope it does not take months until I can crew on the tooth again, I saw an dentist here in Redding that did the permanent crown anyway it was my first one done, I am not too happy that I can't crew on my right side of my mouth because it causes me tooth pain for hours, I took one Advil for the pain, which seems to of helped a little bit, but I am still feel a bit of tooth pulse pain still afterwards today, on a side note, I was not able to have the tooth adjusted sooner because of that carr fire that happened here.

I did not have a root canal on that tooth. I know when I had the temporary on there, it took about 2 to 3 weeks for it to settle down. I had no problems chewing on stuff when I had the temporary on there, but now since they put the permanent one on there I do have problems chewing on that side. Would putting the permanent crown on there cause it to be sensitive to chewing for a while?

If your restorative dentist can not adjust the bite optimally, you may need to see an occlusionist or prosthodontist.

call your dentist and explain your problem. she might want you to wait a few more days. if it doesnt improve it sounds like an adjustment could be necessary. did you have a root canal? if not you may want to avoid chewing hard things on that side for a while and let the nerve calm down. i have found my crowns that had nerves intact took several months to loose their slight sensitivity.
