Pain and swelling you are near the end of the sequence. See your dentist for a root canal!

In brief: Root canal

The tooth is dying, or is infected inside, then the nerve dies and you feel no pain.
An x-ray and simple tests at the dentist will confirm whether the tooth can be saved with a root canal.

In brief: Could be abscess

One of the symptoms of an abscess is sensitivity to pressure.
You should see a dentist and get an x-ray of the area. Watch for possible swelling. Don't wait too long because the situation could get worse fairly quickly.
