Hello Please visit your dentist to take an X Ray to rule out any secondary infection in that tooth. Post that if everything is correct the gums around the tooth should be evaluated for certain symptoms and then a conclusion can be drawn.

It could be that there is an infection in the adjacent tooth, or it may be because the gutta percha has gone beyond the apex of the tooth. In any case, we can't be sure without taking a radiograph of the tooth
Next Steps
Consult your dentist
Health Tips
Get an IOPA radiograph taken, as it is the only way to know for sure the cause behind this problem.
