For now you can use RIM's official solution (it's quick and easy)
Lock your phone and depress the trackball and WHILE holding it down role the ball with a little force in several different directions, (I usually go the opposite direction that it's not working) you may do to this a couple of times. I am sure it will start working again. This method dislodges the debris that is blocking it.
For cleaning just search for cleaning trackball you will find lot's of info!
