In brief: Many

You can take over the counter tylenol, (acetaminophen) Ibuprofen or similar drugs for the pain.
You can also try numbing gels: oragel, anbesol. Gargle with warm salt water also helpful. If the above don't work, call your dentist to be re-evaluated or for stronger prescription pain medication.
