Need to see a dentist NOW. Sounds like a tooth infection and can become very serious very quickly

The side that hurts has a wisdom tooth that is not fully erupted with an angled edge that is sharp. At your age it is not going to erupt anymore so best advice is to have tooth extracted for better comfort.

Affected tooth malformed, broken, partially impacted, or decayed. See your Dentist. Referral to Oral Surgeon probably wise.
