Root canal therapy
I completed my rct with crown towards July end 2021. At present i feel a slight pain on my crown only when i tap on my it. I have a very small pimple which is half the shape of an ant on the back gum of the crown and pains at level 1 on a scale of 1-10 where 1 indicates low pain. I visited the doctor, according to whom i had the pain because gums are causing the pain due to small food particles stuck between the crown and its neighbouring tooth. An xray was done, seemed fine too. A thread floss was used, i felt a bit relieved. The pain is not severe but it is there on a tap. Only sometimes when i bite it just feels off. Crown seems slightly thick too towards the front. I do not have sensitivity to air,heat or cold. I want to know is it possible to feel pain on a crown after months when an rct has been done on a crown? When do actually these pain on a root canal crown occurs? Ideally the tooth is dead it should not react.

Hello As you mentioned that the RCT was done by the end of July so it’s almost 4 to 5 months by now all the discomfort that must have been there should have been relieved. if still you feel pain while tapping on your crown or while biting or eating food there must be some reason behind it. it would be better if you can upload some photographs or especially the x-ray for a better clarity
