Tooth pain can be caused by a variety of causes. From what you experience, the pain in the molars when pressed between the lower and upper jaw may be due to gum inflammation or gingivitis.

Gingivitis is a case that is mild and occurs frequently. Gingivitis is most often caused by a buildup of plaque on the gums, and can sometimes be accompanied by a bacterial infection. Gingivitis can cause symptoms such as pain in the inflamed area of ​​the gums (which in your case the molars), pain can be aggravated by pressing on the teeth or when consuming foods that are too hard. In addition, gingivitis can also cause bleeding when brushing your teeth, and can cause loose teeth in an advanced state.

In the meantime, you can rinse your mouth using an over-the-counter antiseptic solution. Avoid consuming foods that are too hot or too cold. Chew food preferably with the molar side that is not painful. Replace toothbrush with soft bristles.

But besides that, the condition you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:

loose teeth
impacted teeth

Therefore, if your condition does not improve within 2-3 days, you should go to the dentist directly, so that the doctor can check your condition directly.
