Could an Ill-fitting Crown be the Source of Severe Jaw/Ear Pain?

Did this cracked tooth have a root canal?  Did the dentist mention if the nerve/pulp of the tooth was close? Did you traumatize the tooth by falling or hitting something against your face?  Does your bite feel normal? Did you have a new x-ray taken?  Has your bite been checked again to make sure the occlusion is acceptable?

These are some of the possibilities for a diagnosis:

  1. Cracked tooth below the gum into the bone
  2. Need for root canal – nerve involvement
  3. TMJ issues
  4. Infection/decay in tooth
  5. Infection in the bone

I would suggest seeing a Periodontist for a complete evaluation ASAP.
