In brief: Likely Extraction
If your wisdom teeth are breaking down you need to have the checked out.
It is likely that they will need to be removed if they are not fixable or if you just can not maintain them well. If you choose not to, then you run the risk of much pain, infection that may lead to an emerge visit. Go see your dentist.

Extract before they get more difficult to extract and before you are in pain.
