Brief Answer:
hello there,probably it is tooth infection.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to XXXXXXX forum,

According to your clinical symptoms i suppose that you are having toothache while chewing it can probably be due to food lodgement or there could be presence of high points if the tooth is recently filled, toothache indicated infection in the tooth that have involved the pulpal tissue, such type of infected tooth needs to be treated with Dentist and get a thorough clinical examination done, take an IOPA radiograph of the involved tooth based upon which the type of treatment will be decided.

It is very nice to hear that you have started using listerine mouthwash, continue the use to maintain a good oral hygiene. For pain relief you can start with the course of cap AMOX, tab ACECLOFENAC, TDS under the prescription of your Dentist for 3-5 days.

Hope you find this as helpful, if you have any further queries feel free to ask!
Wish you a quick recovery!

Take care!
Dr Qazi
