Pain when chewing on right side, have braces. Pain caused by tooth or hard palate?

Hi, I have been having this pain when I chew foods on the right side of my mouth. I think that there is something in my hard palate, is that possible? Or is the tooth that makes the pain? I tried to press that area on my hard palate, as hard as I pressed it, the more pain occurs even at the molars that are near to it. Btw, I have braces but I don't think that's the reason for the occurrence of the pain.

Hi, The pain might be due to periodontitis due to food accumulation in that region since its difficult to clean the area with braces on. Get it deep cleaning done with dentist and use some good mouth washes and do not use toothpick to clean...
Thank you
