Dentist 's  Response
hello and welcome to hcm,
feeling no pain is the result of successful root canal treatment and after fixing the temperory restorations, sometimes patient do feel sensitivity, and if there are some chances of hair line fracture, then ask the dentist to do tender on percussion test wher he will tap on the tooth and if there is fracture or some apical infection, it will be tender to it and take one x-ray of that. hope you are not having any gnawing pain after fixation as it occur due to imperfect fit of crowns.

Dentist, Prosthodontics Dr. Shivangi Gajwani Jain's  Response
Hi Sid,
Has your dentist taken an xray of the tooth, as a hairline fracture maybe visible on it. If not so, then please ask him to do so. sometimes if the fracture is not that discernable then applying pressure can help determine the fracture. after the placement of crown, you would have eaten from that side putting pressure, resulting in pain. If it isnt a hairline fracture then maybe the crown is high ie: when you close your mouth, that temporary crown might feel like it comes in contact of other teeth first compared to the other teeth. If so then your dentist just has to reduce it in size and you will be comfortable.
