In brief: No

usually inflammation around erupted wisdom teeth is a localized condition called pericoronitis, which can be painful, but easily resolved.
Rinsing with a monoject syringe around the skin area 3-5 x a day with warm salt water will usually help. However, for long term resolution, the wisdom teeth should probably be removed. Consult with an oral surgeon ASAP.
