In brief: Typically

Your dentist is the best source of that advice but Amoxicillin is typically used with no history of penicillin allergy.

In brief: Amoxicillin

Amoxicillin is a good starting point as long as you aren't allergic to it.
You will need to see your dentist to see if your wisdom tooth needs to be extracted. You want to treat the cause of the problem not only the symptoms.
