Hello, everyone. I had a root canal and a permanent crown was completed in mid-March. It is on my lower molar on the left. It has been three months and I still have a sensation like my jaw underneath where they did the work is bruised. When I put pressure on that spot (from the outside) it feels like it would if I had a bruise.

Would you suggest I get this examined? It does not hurt unless I press on it from the outside. Thanks!

That's a bit vague. If you can eat on the tooth without discomfort, then wait until your next regular check-up.

I am unsure what else I can write. I have been eating on the right side for the most part since I got the temporary crown, so I do not chew much on the side where the crown is located. I would not say there is any pain when I chew on the side with the crown, however, it does not feel natural.

Thanks for replying!
