In brief: Anesthetic gel.

Anesthetic gel is avaliable in several forms.
Those containing either Benzocaine or xylocaine (lidocaine) work best.

In brief: See your dentist

As a temporary measur you can use tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for pain but you must see a dentist to find out the cause.
