Brief Answer:
Needs to get an x ray done to check for infection..

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Welcome back..

As per your answers it seems that pain in tooth that was root canal treated prior to capping can be due to re-infection in the tooth that is causing pain while it can also happen if the crown is large in size and the lower teeth hits against it on the inner side..
You should get an x ray done and also the bite needs to be checked for looking for whether the lower teeth are hitting or not..
Treatment will be decided accordingly..
If there will be infection in the tooth then repeating root canal treatment has to be done.
In case if the crown is large then minor trimming will help..
As of now you can take anti inflammatory painkiller like Ibuprofen or Naproxen for pain relief..

Any further queries are welcome..

Wait n watch..

Hi..
Welcome back..

If the pain has subsided and if some sensitivity to heat is there, still my suggestion is to get an x ray done.

But in case of you do not want to go for it then you can wait n watch for how it progresses and a short course of antibiotics can be taken by consulting a local dentist.

Hope this helps

Brief Answer:
Hot sensitivity indicate infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Welcome back..

If there is sensitivity to hot it is commonly elated in cases of infection..

So I would still advice an x ray that you can scan and upload here so that I can evaluate it and guide you appropriate treatment..
