I recently had a temporary crown and I'm experiencing constant pain.
I recently had a crown break. My dentist has put on a temporary replacement crown. It's been over 2 weeks, and I'm experiencing constant pain - but not just in that one tooth. The pain seems to shift from that back molar to front teeth, and even the opposing tooth above the temporary crown. Any known reason why my teeth would be generally so painful this long after the temporary crown?

The reason why you are feeling pain sounds like it is an inflammation in the gum, or in a tooth, from what you are describing, it sounds like a root canal pain but your dentist should be able to find out the source of the pain, since the diagnosis will require physical evaluation and x-rays to the area.

It is also possible there can be a crack in the tooth which has not been found previously to getting the tooth ready for the crown. These cracks sometimes appear suddenly and could not be seen but they might still exist. When you speak of the pain migrating I agree with drj

Take some pain killers to get relief from the pain.
