Throbbing tooth

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. Regards

Hello there...it might be your metal cap that has become loose over a period of time... In my opinion, you should visit a nearby dentist for a proper diagnosis with x-ray ASAP. Take care ..!!
