Hard to explain: however if gums and teeth are ok it is not something bad. may get an x ray of the bones to check out further

See an endodontist: Oral infections such as certain chronic abscess or cracked, fractured teeth can often be difficult to diagnose and treat. In addition to dental school, endodontists receive 2-3 more years of advanced education in this kind of diagnosis and treatment. That’s why you should see an endodontist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Sore teeth/gums: The causes of sore teeth and gums could be from decay, infected (abcessed) teeth, infected gums (periodontal disease), fractured teeth or fillings, bruxism (chronic teeth grinding and/or clenching), or an infection in the jaw. This can only be determined by a thorough dental exam with x-rays, including an examination of your bite (occlusion). Check back with your dentist or seek a 2nd opinion.
