Crown Discomfort and Pressure
I had a crown placed on my implant last week. When the dentist put it on before he cemented it, I felt extreme discomfort and pressure in my sinuses and it felt too big and there was pressure being put on the teeth in front and in back of the crown.
After a lot of fussing and shaving, he got it to a point that was relatively comfortable (so I thought). The next day I woke up with a sinus headache on that side and pain in my mouth. I called to go back in and have it checked. My appointment was a few days off and the sharpness of the pain subsided, but I still had a dull sinus headache and discomfort. I can't eat on that side. When I went in he tried to remove the crown but it was glued on very tight. He said he used temporary cement so I assumed it could be removed at any point but the banging and pulling were making me crazy so I asked him to stop for fear that he might do some damage to the implant or my other teeth. I made an appointment to go back to the specialist who placed the implant. I have not gone to see him yet. The dull headache is still there, I can't eat on that side and I noticed that my cheek feels pain too(it feels irritated). Has anyone ever had this happen and what do you think it is?
