My left side lower premolar teeth was capped about a year back as its cavity was almost touching the nerve bed. The dentist instead to doing root canal suggested to just cap the teeth. Till now it was okay, but now I can feel some sensation in my gum when I bite anything hard with that teeth. It's not pain, but it does wordy me. What do you suggest? can they take off the cap, do a root canal and refix the cap?

Hi, you may have infection in periapical region. Rct is very important step when the pulp is exposed. You need to be investigated. Go to the dentist who did it. Get rct done. You need some antibiotic and anti inflammatory medications. You can consult me.
