In brief: Keep the area clean.

If it is a condition where there's a flap remaining covering the tooth, it is important to keep the site clean to eliminate any food impaction that can cause further pain due to infection besides taking antiinflammatory medication.
I hope you already called your dentist by now to check if your wisdom teeth have enough room in your jaw.

Use otc pain meds.
Saline rinses. See an oral surgeon who can prescribe antibiotics if infected and discuss treatment options.

In brief: OTC Pain meds

The pain meds will hold you over until you can get to your dentist to be evaluated for treatment.
They may have to be extracted.
