Thanks for posting your query.

What I understand from your query is that you are having pain while drinking cold water in your teeth and having cavity in wisdom teeth.

Normally our teeth are made of many layers. Each layer has different functions. When ever there is some damage to the integrity of this outer layers and underlying dentin is exposed, the nerve endings open up and leads to pain with hot or cold. They become sensitive.

The best advice for you is to visit a dentist and get your self examined. Any infection or cavity at your age needs to be treated energetically. You may require an x XXXXXXX of the affected teeth so see extent of damage.

After that is something like cavity is found you may require filling or some treatment like root canal treatment. Your dentist is the best person who can guide you for this.

In mean time,
Please avoid eating hard substances
Brush your teeth’s twice a day
Do regular floss
There are toothpastes available in the market for sensitive teeth, which will prevent pain with certain liquids or foods. This is a temporary measure, you should not routinely use this.

I hope this helps.

Please write again if you have something more to ask, in case of no further query please accept the answer.

Wishing you good health.
