Initially I had my upper right tooth filled for cavity. But after a month pain continued. So they went for root cannal. Permanent crown is placed. After a week of RCT. I feel the pain when I chew with that teeth. However it is no longer sensitive to temperature. Is this normal?

Although very rarely pain can continue for up to 7 to 10 days after the root canal treatment, but that delays the Crown placement as well.... if the Crown was placed when no pain was there, the pain should not reoccur..... the best answer for this doubt will be by looking at the X-ray of the RCT treated tooth..... please post the same if you have one.....
Pain for a day or two after Rct is considered ok.But pain even after a week is not a good sign .Generally pain which u had earlier should wear off.As told by other doctors ,an xray will best determine the cause of pain.Pls visit your dentist and share your concerns with him.Simple xray will give you your answer.All the best.
