Q: I had a root canal done and it seems the artificial tooth isn’t fitting properly to my gum. Would it be detrimental to my gum? I know it’s not fitted correctly or the artificial tooth isn’t shaped correctly because whenever I chew on something, my gum starts to ache. After taking couple of aspirin, the throbbing from my gum went away. I called the dentist but their attitude is it would be alright after a while. If I leave it alone with the way my root canal tooth was done, would it be detrimental to my gum and to my overall health? Is the attitude of my dentist something I should complain about to the Dental Association?
A: I would suggest a second opinion with another dentist.
