In brief: Ibuprofen or Orabase

Best thing is to get the tooth extracted if it is not fitting in your mouth and causing you pain, assuming it is truly your wisdom tooth.
Your dentist will decide. To tie you over until then, Ibuprofen (motrin, advil), is best medicine for a toothache/gum ache. Make sure you have no drug allergy to Aspirin or ibuprofen. Some topical dental pain relievers like orabase or zilactin may also help.

In brief: Orajel

Salt water rinses and otc pain medication such as advil, motrin, aleve (naproxen) or what you normally take for a headache.
Avoid hot and spicy foods. Orajel may also help. Honestly, there's not much you can do until you see your dentist.
