Dentistry/pain after crown preparation


after having a crown prepared on my lower 7 , i'm experiencing severe pain that woke me up from my sleep, i can't eat and function without taking ibuprofen 400mg , i'm afraid it needs root canal treatment , and i don't have an appointment until next Thursday with my dr. my provisional fell off 1 day ago and i reset it back in it's place
could it be only sensitivity ?

thank you

Hello lana
Yes it is sensitivity due to the disloged temp crown, rush back to ur dentist and get it replaced as delay could create problems while fixing the permanent crown.
Dont worry it happens but dont delay either.
Best wishes
