Hello,

Read your query, as you have toothache this can be due to wisdom tooth is impacted vertically , horizontally , mesially , distally or due to infection due to caries causes periapical pathology leads to Periapical abscess , Pericoronal abscess or Pericoronitis .
For this you should consult dentist and go for investigations IOPA x ray of tooth and if it is impacted then discuss with your dentist and go for extraction , if pain is due to infection you should go for Root canal treatment or Oral prophylaxis .
In meantime you can do luke warm saline gargle two - three times a day, you can take painkiller like Ibugesic plus or ketorol dt for temporary relief.

Hope it will help you.
