Possible reinfection: You could be exhibiting signs of an infection under the tooth in the bone. Call your dentist. Once he has determined the source, which tooth, the infection can be controlled with antibiotics. When you are comfortable and more apt at making a good decision, you can look at options to correct problem.

See Endodontist: get this tooth evaluated by a root canal specialist. If the root canal is failing, a specialist can often retreat it

Sometimes all that's needed is to adjust the restoration. Dr. Grossman is correct, see an Endodontist.
