hello, you can do warm salt water rinses as a home remedy, but this will give you only temporary relief from pain. you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. get an x-ray done. The best treatment for wisdom tooth is to get it removed.

Wisdom tooth is last tooth to errupt in oral cavity so many times there is less room left for it to errupt in normal position. Often it errupt tilted or partially embeded. In such cases best treatment is to extract it.
