Dear friend there are two possibilities as per history given by you. 1)  pain on chewing hard food couldbe  if you have any neglected  painful tooth cavities. 2) pain due to regular chewing of gums and you do not have any tooth cavities; implies the your oral muscle are over fatigued due to regular gum chewing habit. if so give hot packs of your painful muscles for temporary relief. consultant your dentist.

it looks like you might have decay on teeth.. get the X-ray done in which decay will be visible so that diagnosis will be easy..visit to a dentist for X-ray and appropriate treatment..

Abrasion, erosion, cavities and gum disease all give you pain on and in around the teeth. Walk in to a dentist office for diagnosis after a clinical evaluation and treatment options. TC
