    Hi... I am practicing dentistry and one of my patient having root canal treatment and crown from me... But just after 24hrs of cementing PFM crown ..she started complain of sensitivity and pain in that tooth. After adjusting bite and giving NSAIDS and followup complain persist. As soon as the crown removed ..she got fine and no sensitivity.... Then to exclude metal allery I put temporary crown of acrylic origin.. She felt OK ...as she has no history of metal allergies and she already done tests for allergies... So what should do...?? My question Is it happens actually ???thanks Dr Yusra

    Do you mean you've done an RCT on the same tooth as the crown?

    Can't have hot/cold sensitivity from this tooth if RCTd. Any metal allergy/intolerance would show up as localised gingival erythema (like a gingivitis), and also not cause any sensitivity. Pulp test adjacent teeth? Got any Xrays?
