Most probably you have open nerve endings in relation to that tooth. U can use any sensitivity toothpaste. Apply it on affected tooth and leave it for a few minutes then rinse. It might work. Pain can be due to your wisdom tooth may be erupting. Get an OPG done to check. Better view can only be seen after check up only.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user. According to your age and time period of pain as you mentioned can be due to eruption of third molar. OPG should be done and you can wait for few months also. It's not harmful. For the time being you can use mouthwash, anti sensitivity toothpaste. Luke warm saline gargles 3-4 times a day.
