Hi. I was wondering if someone could tell me if there is possible infection or other underlaying problems like a possible need for a RCT with my Xray. This Xray is pre treatment to my crown. The tooth needed a crown due to too many fillings with minimal contact. He didn't give me a follow up xray when I told him about pain. He numbed me a second time. He also filled a cavity under there before putting a temporary crown on. It is just ripping thro my face with nerve pain, when I take a breath in even. He told me it's usual and unusual so who knows what that means. I'm going to end up getting it pulled at this point, and of course they already took my 700$

Good day

I think it is best to request a follow-up x-ray. Although some sensitivity is usually normal after a crown prep, it should not be excruciating pain. The pre-prep x-ray shows a filling that was very close to the nerve. My money would be on a possible root canal treatment on this tooth. Don't cement the permanent crown before this issue is resolved
