Yes it can be possible that you have an abscess in your tooth and you do not feel any swelling or pain, this kind of symptoms occur when there is a chronic condition, means when infection is present in the tooth for a long time and body immunity is strong, which is not letting the infection to spread properly.
So abscess occur without any pain or swelling.
Hope it will help you.
