Hello there....If your wisdom tooth is angulated (mesio-angular/horizontally impacted tooth) towards the second molar (the one adjacent to wisdom tooth), food gets impacted between these two teeth...the food impacted cannot be cleaned by you....this starts damaging your 2nd molar...
If your wisdom tooth is normally positioned, the problem should be with your 2nd molar itself..get an intra-oral periapical radiograph to confirm if the decay is involving the pulp (vital part of tooth)...
if the tooth is not damaged so much, get a root canal treatment done or get your second molar and wisdom tooth removed...Consult your doctor for further clinical evaluation and management.
