Hello and welcome to HCM
An erupting tooth is associated with pain in the gums but throbbing pain
does not occur.
Throbbing pain indicates infection and pus accumulation.
You can take over the counter analgesics but you should consult a dentist
at the earliest.
If there is pus accumulation, it has to be drained.
Wisdom teeth ae associated with impactation, growth in different directions and infection.
So, a clinical examination, X-ray of the wisdom tooth area is required.
Surgical removal of the tooth and drainage
of pus may be called for.
So, visit your dentist at the earliest.
Thanks and take care
