See Your Dentist: The best advice would be for you to schedule and appointment with your dentist for evaluation and any recommended treatment. The resultant trauma to the cheek from the wisdom tooth can be extremely uncomfortable and if left untreated, become quite serious.

Wisdom teeth: Most people don't have enough room for their wisdom teeth, and that's why they're extracted so often. It appears you may need the same. Let your local dentist take a look and give your further advice.

Oral surgeon: Sounds like it should be removed. See an oral surgeon for exam and treatment.

Pain: Your problem is not one that you can fix with an OTC. See a specialist Oral Surgeon, a wisdom tooth expert, for evaluation and (if indicated) treatment.
