In brief: Yes

Chlorhexadine oral rinse is an excellent and very commonly prescribed anti microbial mouth rinse.
In the short term, in can help lessen the acute phase of infected tissue around a wisdom tooth. By no means will it solve a problem other than some short term relief. Have the wisdom teeth removed.
