Tooth crown aching

About 3 weeks ago I got a crown placed on a molar that had a root canal one month ago.

I didn’t have any issues since with the occasional “tight” feeling of the crown.

Two nights ago I went to sleep and woke up a few hours later with pain in that area. I didn’t sleep with my night guard that night.

My tooth ached pretty much all day. Last night I was able to sleep decently and wore my night guard. This morning I didn’t feel much coming from that tooth but as the day dragged on, it started aching again.

Any idea what this could be? No hot/cold sensitivity. Doesn’t hurt when I press with my tongue. Some soreness/pain when I tap it with a blunt object.

Good day

Difficult to say without an x-ray. Will need to see the condition of the root canal, but it could also just be a "bite" problem. Go back to the dentist and see if he can adjust your occlusion

Went to the dentist today. They took a PA. Root canal looked good according to him. No signs of cracking and no sign of inflammation.
