Temp crown pain and dull ache in The Chat Board Posted September 25, 2017 · Edited September 25, 2017 by meganrussell My crown was put on in April. I am still afraid to chew on it! I am so worried it will fall out. It doesn't hurt, but my gum is really sensitive around it. My dentist told me that was normal for up to a year. It's not painful, just a little tender.
