In brief: ER. Oral surgeon

Chest pain should be evaluated in ER NOW.
If heart ok, will likely prescribe antibiotics, pain meds. Then see oral surgeon. For best results with wisdom teeth, make sure you are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon.

In brief: Not likely

Endocarditis is seldom painful, but your symptoms raise a number other serious possibilities.
Antibiotic treatment of a tooth abscess is only part of the management. The abscess needs to be drained; often the tooth must be removed. Dental problems rarely cause chest pain. See a doctor and/or dentist ASAP for evaluation of symptoms.

In brief: Endocarditis

If you are having severe chest pains go straight to the local ER. At your age the pain is likely pericornitis associated with the wisdom tooth .
See you local dentist get on some antibiotics for the abscess and get the offending tooth removed.
