Wisdom teeth usually erupts between 18 to 25 years of age . Most of the time there wont be enough space to erupt that is when it creates problem either due to food lodgement or gum infection.  The only permanent solution will be extraction of tooth. It will be minor surgical procedure usually done by a Maxillofacial surgeon.  So get it extracted.

3rd molar normally erupts at age of 18-21, when they do not erupts it might get impacted within jaw bone. Radiographic(IOPA/OPG) conformation needs to diagnose such impacted teeth. Food get lodged between these teeth and soft tissue causing inflammation and thus pain.  Surgical removal of these teeth needed in such cases.
Next Steps
Get opg/IOPA done
Health Tips
Clean that area  & avoid food being stuck in that area.   Use warm saline gargle which might help. Consult dentist.

Consult a maxillofacial surgeon and get it removed immediately. Delay might cause swelling and reduction in mouth opening. It's a vestigial organ,removal is the only option.

Hi.... Brush your teeth after you eat. Keep a toothbrush at work to use after eating. Brush using a fluoride-containing toothpaste at least twice a day, especially after meals. Toothpaste with antibacterial properties has been shown to reduce any infection.... Schedule regular dental checkups. See your dentist on a regular basis — generally once or twice a year — to have your teeth or dentures examined and cleaned....
