Most likely there is infection if there is pain. At this age the wisdom tooth will not come out completely and keep causing problems. Better to take an x ray for good measure followed by extraction for good measure.
Next Steps
OPG (x-ray)
Health Tips
Rinse with warm salt water for some relief as of now. Consult a dentist as soon as possible.

Firstly keep the wisdom tooth area clean. Use mouthwash. If there is pain, there is definitely some infection or inflammation which won't go away on its own.
Next Steps
Visit dentist for clinical examination and x ray.

First thing is get an X-ray done... If your wisdom teeth is erupting now chances are there is not proper space of eruption because of which pain might occur... If it's erupting normally it might be a eruption might.This will be cleared once you have the x-ray

It could be eruption pain or the pain of a tooth which is stuck and infected so please get an X-ray and check the position of tooth to see if it’s coming out as typically at your age it doesn’t This kind of tooth if stuck may give you pain that goes away with painkillers but comes back again if it gets very frequent and intense you may have to remove the tooth as the last resort
Next Steps
X-ray called Digital OPG
Health Tips
Try icing the area and start with a basic anti inflammatory like paracetamol

Hi, Wisdom teeth usually erupt at around 18-21 years of age. So it is pretty late in the day for it to be erupting.What could be more likely considering the pain you are experiencing is that you are having an infection/inflammation in a partially erupted wisdom tooth.An ordinary eruption is not very painful.
Next Steps
I suggest you try to flush the area with warm salt water repeatedly (every hour if possible).This will wash away any food debris and reduce inflammation.Be sure that the rinsing is vigirous in that area so that it is cleansed.
Health Tips
Incase it does not subside you will need to consult a dentist who may recommend an xray for further investigation.

You should get an X-ray done to confirm if it is normal eruption. At times wisdom tooth are stuck because of less space and cause problems.
