It depends: There may or may not be something that can be done regarding medication and\or treatment of perhaps your own body will heal it over time. It depends upon the extent of the damage, how long ago the injury occurred, your general health and nutrition, medications taken, existing conditions as well as a host of other factors. This is best discussed with a specialist (Oral Surgeon) in your area.

Get a consult: See a pain management specialist. A procedure may need to be done on the nerve itself. These "pop" remedies probably won't help you.
