Dentistry/dental pain


on 1/10/15 I noticed pain from my lower right jaw.  My dentist said my x-rays don't reveal any problem.  He forcefully tapped all teeth on the upper and lower right side and probed for any foreign particles between the gum and tooth.  I suspect the pain may be from a crowned root canal molar.  When I chew on the right side, I get throbbing as well as continual pain.  The dentist suggested I return after two days if the pain persists. This dentist does mostly everything including laser and implants.  If he can't find the problem by tapping and viewing x-rays, what course of action can help me?  I really appreciate your reply, as I am beginning to suspect that he may not be able to identify the tooth or cause of the pain.

hi jamie
