Wisdom truth hurts. Why? Use warm water with salt?

My bottom right wisdom teeth are growing in and it is painful. I can t even chew on the right side! My gum is also sore from accidently biting down on it; to the point where there is a blister . What can I do to relieve the pain? I ve tried taking aspirin and gargling warm salt water and they only help for a short time.

Hi, Alex.
Thanks for query.
Due to growing of wisdom teeth there is formation of a pocket between teeth and skin over the teeth.
In this pocket food particle trapped leading to infection giving rise to pain, swelling.
I advice to remove this flap or get the wisdom teeth extracted.
Do warm water gargle after taking any thing by mouth.
Ok and bye.
