    Is this normal after a crown has been placed on a tooth after root canal treatment that biting it's a little bit painful? It's only a second day after the treatment. When pressing above the tooth on gums it's painful also. I think it's the spot where the dentist made an injection so that I wouldn't feel pain during the treatment.

    I had a crown put on two of my teeth after root canal treatment. The irritation from anesthetic injections is more of a scratch than an ache.

    The one on back of my teeth irritates now and then when eating but you get used to it. Give it a 2-3 weeks to see if the pain dies down and you adapt to your crown. Try not to fiddle with it too much (I.e. touching it with your tongue to see how much it hurts). If the pain gets worse then go back to the dentist.
