Hii,
I have extracted upper right wisdom tooth on July. I did that because I had lower jaw pain and neck pain. I went to dentist and he said that wisdom tooth could be a reason. Extracted it and still same symptoms. Dentist suspect a tooth root fracture in tooth#30 and told me to extract that. Went to Endodontist and he said he couldn't see any fracture and did RCT. I did rct in September first week. Crown not done yet.

After my wisdom tooth extraction, I see some hard bump on the gum of extraction site. I went back to OMFS in August and he said it will absorb on own. It didn't. Went back to him on Monday and he shaved it down. He put anesthesia and scraped that area so hard and aggressive. I still feel soreness and pain in the extraction gum and inside cheek area. He did stitches too. I have a crown work #30 scheduled for next week. Can I do crown work or should I wait till this wisdom tooth area heal completely?they said it will take 2 weeks to dissolve the stitches.

Thanks.

It should be fine to go ahead with the crown, as long as you do not experience any pain from the root treated tooth and the root canal treatment is good.

Thank you for the response @A_s . Rct treatment is good and that tooth is not showing any symptoms. My pain is in the lower jaw and neck. They suspect tooth fracture on this tooth could be the reason for my symptoms.

My concern is about the crown impression material. I never had crown before. I read online that impression material will be placed on all the teeth on the right side. I still have hole in the extraction site area where I did that bone fragment shaving done. It has some stitches too.
I see a socket hole too. I don't want the impression material to get into socket. Will the material be placed on all the tooth or only on that particular tooth? Any inputs.

The crown impression material itself is safe, but if you are concern about the material to get into the socket or any other concerns, you can always postpone the crown treatment for now, provided that you can take care of the root treated tooth e.g. do not eat/chew anything hard onto it (but you can still brush normally). :) Hope it helps.

Have you had crown before? If yes, How is the impression taken? Any idea? Is it done on one tooth or the lower teeth and upper teeth??

I have taken many impressions for my patients. The impression sets in a few minutes will come out in one piece. The impression taken ideally needs to capture all the teeth because we need to simulate your bite and jaw movements, etc in order to make a crown that actually fits with your bite. Because every crown is different and it needs to be accurately made just for you.

Thank you @A_s.
Are you a dentist?? See you mentioned about patients.

So, for the impression of a lower first molar, do they take impression of upper teeth too? So it might hurt or affect the extraction area on upper? I don't want the material to stuck into the socket and don't want the material to pull up the stitches. That's the only concern.
I don't want to postpone too. Because I am dealing with lower jaw and neck pain since may. No diagnosis yet. This root canal is done suspecting the lower molar fracture is the reason for my pain. Same symptoms after rct. My dentist want me to extract that tooth. The Endodontist don't want me to extract and told me to try RCT. I have to finish this crown procedure and have other specialist visits(ent, neuro) to find the diagnosis.

I asked my dentist office if it's ok to do crown after wisdom tooth stitches and the staff said it's ok to do.
I have scheduled for next Thursday as I thought 10 days time after this stitches will be ok. But now the dentist office asked me to come on Monday as they have a schedule open.
I don't know if the area will be healed so soon and stitches dissolved. I still have soreness and little discomfort in tht gum area. Taking ibuprofen.

Do you think the crown impression might affect this healing process or take off the stitches?
