Does having dental crown hurt?

Published on:2017-1-15

Dental crown can replace a missing tooth or covers over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, crowns can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion. Thus, it is very popular in dental healthcare. 

Before having the crown, there is a stage call tooth preparation. The dentist will file down the tooth to make room for the crown. If the tooth is vital, local anaesthesia has to be taken to avoid feeling pain and you may feel a little discomfort. If the tooth is non-vital and has been treated before, only some sensitive patients feel pain. You can talk with the dentist and ask him to give you local anaesthesia. However, most people do not need it. Other stages of having dental crown do not hurt.

To draw a conclusion, during the procedure of having dental crown normally causes a little discomfort but no pain. If you are very sensitive to pain, just talk to the dentist and he will help you about this.
