Contact nearby Dentist ,it could be because of wisdom tooth or because of infection in the tooth ,clinical evalution is required and if needed an xray also.

It could be tooth decay that is causing pain. If the pain is more while eating and at night while sleeping, it could suggest a infection that will require root canal treatment. A x ray of the tooth will be taken to confirm whether root canal Is required or not. There is also a chance of pain in the wisdom tooth..visit a nearby dentist and get a x ray done for that particular tooth and get the required treatment done.
