Is it possible to bruise a tooth nerve or gum?

Is it possible to cause the nerve in a tooth to be irritated temporarily by applying too much pressure on it?
My Case: Approx 10 days ago I bit down on a soft, but really chewy pizza crust with my top, left, rear molar and immediately had pain up through my tooth to my gums. It dissipated within 3-5 minutes but I was left with an ache there. Over the next week or so it is becoming less & less irritated to almost feeling normal. There is no discomfort with hot or cold or from the pressure while I am eating. I know I didnít chip the tooth at all. Occasionally there is a dull ache in the tooth/gum area, which is not difficult to tolerate.
Could I have just put too much pressure on it causing the tooth and nerve to move, basically bruising the nerve or gum? Any thoughts?
