I take it this is a wisdom tooth that is growing in but is not in need of removal. If that is correct there is not a whole lot you can do. You might try Ambesol, which deadens the pain at the tooth. if the pain spreads beyond the tooth area you might need to have it removed and the dentist is just waiting for it to come in more....ouch.
In all seriousness, this might be a good time to learn electric or upright bass. they are a great and useful double for tuba players, and the knowledge you gain on those instruments can be transfered to the tuba.
