In brief: Get them out
You can try to hide the problem with pain meds but it will come back.
Get to your dentist for consult and then treatment. You can take meds, use ice packs and i would rec you keep the areas as clean as you can with brushing and also warm salt water rinses. This may help to keep you comfortable until treatment is done.

In brief: See a dentist
Wisdom teeth can cause pain when they are poorly aligned or impacted.
Abnormal positioning of wisdom teeth can also of crowd or damage adjacent teeth by making those teeth more vulnerable to decay by collecting food particles and harboring bacteria, and/or pressing on the nerves in the jaw. Many people need their wisdom teeth removed in their late teens or early 20s.
