I recently had a root canal treatment. After capping i am not feeling comfortable. It is like when i am closing the mouth the crown is hitting the lower teeth and rest teeth are not getting closed properly. Also while chewing i am having mild pain in the tooth next to the treated one. What should i do ? Is this normal ? Just 24 hours of capping now ?

yes it needs some correction. please visit you dentist & it will be done.
the cap is little higher than your normal bite which in our parlance is called a "high point".
Most of your problem will b solved by minor adjustment
It seems that the positioning of the Crown cap is not correct. I would advice you to consult your dentist again and discuss that same with him. It must be adjusted properly for proper closing of mouth. If not done it might cause lead to some other problem. My advice is to get it checked ASAP.
Hello sir, the moment the cap/crown was placed on your tooth, were your rest of the teeth closing then ? If the difficulty in closing mouth is since then, the possibility is that there may be some problem with the crown fit.
And if closing rest of the teeth was not a problem then, I would advise you to report back to the dentist and get an xray done to review the status of root canal treated teeth on which the crown was placed.
