It is always better to visit your nearest oral and maxillofacial.surgeon for wisdom teeth issues as the symptoms of throat have tendency to spread even more. Antibiotics will be prescribed before or after the treatment depending on your condition

Sometimes when the tooth is not fully out, a pocket forms between tooth and gums. Food lodgement occurs in that pocket and causes infection and pain. We call is pericoronitis
Next Steps
take painkillers and do warm saline gargle as much as possible.
Health Tips
keep that area clean for infection to subside
