Consult ur dentist again...if u hav consistent pain dat means dere r some dead infectious pulpal tissue remains in roots of ur tooth. Ur tooth needs further cleaning wd proper removal of dead tissue n irrigation. along wd antibiotic course.. don't use dat side for chewing dere may b pain due to pressure on chewing also... do warm saline rinses...
