Pain is behind tooth under in gum area
Expert:  Michael Korn, DDS replied 2 months ago.

It's possible you have an abscess from a necrotic nerve or potentially an infection in the gums around the tooth. Normally we wouldn't take the kind of x-ray that would show an abscess at your normal 6 month cleaning and exam visit. Now that you're having symptoms you will want to go visit the dentist again. Have them take an x-ray and do a series of tests to see if the nerve is in fact necrotic or still alive.

I hope this helps,
