In brief: Crack or infection

Pain when chewing can be a cracked tooth, or an infection in your jaw, under the tooth.
See your dentist to diagnose properly.

In brief: Toothache

Could be a cavity, a loose filling, periodontal problems, a cracked tooth, an abscess.
So many possibilities, but without seeing the tooth and looking at a radiograph, impossible to tell what your problem is. Call a local dentist for an appointment.
