In brief: Clenching
You may be clenching your jaw/teeth during the vigorous activity.
Try using a mouth guard or consult your dentist for a custom appliance.

In brief: Possibly TMJ
Possibly you are clenching your jaws during work outs or vigorous activity.
That would lead to jaw and possibly tooth or gum pain. I would suggest seeing your dentist or oral surgeon. Another possibility would be a hairline fracture in one of your teeth or tooth roots. Less likely would be some type of nutritional deficiency.
