Tooth hurts when I apply small pressure, pain goes away when I increase the pressure. Dentist found nothing wrong

Only one tooth hurts. The pain is provoked only by small pressure/touch, also when I'm eating. But the pain disappears when I increase the pressure and for 30 seconds I feels no pain. The harder the pressure the less pain I feel. Cold or warm stimuli don't provoke any pain.

All started 1 moths ago, gradually the I could feel more pain and the peek lasted 2-3 days, after that no pain. This cycle repeated itself 3 times. This third time I see that the pain continues to last event after 5 days.

Today I went to the dentist,first he did a visual inspection and didn't find something wrong, then he decided to do a X-Ray (yellow arrow points to the tooth) and again, nothing wrong. Told me to change the tooth paste to Sensodyne rapid relief and different tooth brush.

I had multiple tooth interventions in the past (not at that tooth) and this is nothing like what I have experienced before. I's a strange situation where I feel a strange pain (only on small and medium pressure) and the tooth seems to be OK.

Is this something to do with tooth sensibility?? Or do you think its something else ?

The type of pain you are feeling could be coming from either a periodontal (gum) problem, a tooth fracture, or even an abscess. Best way to find out if the tooth has a crack possibly below the gum line is to see an Endodontist (a dental specialty that deals with root canals) but make sure she or he has a 3D Xray which can find a possible crack. That 3D Xray can also determine if the tooth has a beginning abscess. Second, make sure you have a periodontal probing which both the hygienist or dentist can do.
