Wisdom Teeth: Unfortunately, your problem may not be able to wait. Not sure exactly what part of the world you are in, but you'll need need to research how other locals take care of these emergencies. A bit of traveling may be necessary to reach a specialist. Don't wait until the pain is unbearable. All the best...
