Dentist 's  Response
Hello, thank you for consulting with healthcaremagic.
When there is infection in any tooth you have to get it either removed or get it root canal treated, as infection can spread to the apex and cause an abscess or cyst, which will be very painful, so better you should get it treated as just taking medication can not solve the problem, so you have to make time for appointment of dentist.
Hope it will help you.

Dentist, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Dr. Mahesh Kumar T S's  Response
Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
As far as your problem is concerned, I feel you have a decayed wisdom teeth along with pericoronitis or pericoronal abscess. Nothing to be panic, You can consult a oral maxillofacial surgeon and get the teeth removed since the wisdom teeth are considered functionless and wont help in chewing. Regarding your financial issue, you can go to a educational dental institute and get it done with nominal price or free of cost.
I hope my answer will help you, take care.
