Dentist 's  Response
The wisdom tooth has lead to chronic irritation over the particular region. The wisdom tooth should be removed at the earliest as a permanent solution for the problem. At present there seems not problem. A sharp tooth is one of the risk factors for oral cancer.

let me know-if the tooth is compleately errupted or not?If
it is compleatly errupted,apply Tess ointment &rub it slightly with finger tip.twice a day.
IF IT IS NOT ERRUPTED COMPLEATELY,visit your Dentist.he will perform
a minrer surgery "Flap Removal" so that the tooth will come out totally.

If the tooth is impacted, (seen by dental x ray) it needs removal.

Thanks for query,
While eruption of wisdom tooth overlying tissues also coming out and there is a gap in between,food particles trapped inside causing infection and pain.
Nothing to worry about cancer.
Ask dentist to remove overlying tissue rather than tooth extraction,
Do regular gargle after taking any thing by mouth,
At present if there is infection ,go for antibiotic course.
ok and bye.
