I had a root canal done for my tooth 10 yrs ago and it had a metal crown. Have faced no problems with it since. Yesterday the tooth felt a little loose and since then I can feel a throbbing sensation but no pain. Should i be worried?

Hi..Usually sensation should not happen in a root canal treated tooth that to in a 10 year old. Go for proper evaluation of adjacent teeth from your dentist. Source of sensitivity could be from adjacent teeth having cavity. You can also undergo same or new crown fixing after getting rid of sensitivity.
Hi as u said tooth felt lil loose might be the crown fixed got loose if so is the case it can be fixed again..and if the tooth in whole is mobile then u need to get an x-ray done of the tooth..for proper diagnosis...best is visit ur dentist for better diagnosis..best of luck take care
