In brief: See your dentist

Sometimes wisdom teeth are valuable asset when healthy and properly aligned, but more often, they are misaligned, painful and require removal.
The removal of wisdom teeth is one of the most common procedures. See your dentist for evaluation, x-rays and definitive treatment.

Also, very often, wisdom teeth do not require removal

In brief: See a dentist

See a dentist to determine whether or not that wisdom tooth (as well as the other three), need to be removed.
If the tooth is coming in straight and there will be enough room for it to erupt, and not likely to pose any future problems, your dentist can suggest palliative treatment meanwhile.
