Hello,
A thorough clinical evaluation of oral cavity is required regarding your concern.
An x-ray of the tooth with crown placed has to be done.
Apply diclofenac gel on the affected site.
Swish frequently with lukewarm saline and betadine.
If there is infection or abscess underlying tooth,it has to be drained and curetted.
Maintain oral care.
Hope this helps.
