In brief: Clinic

Most states have a dental clinic that often times does free dental treatment.
Call them and see if they can help you. Sometimes you can also go to the hospital to have the tooth pulled.

In brief: You can't

It's not a DIY procedure.
You MUST, however, have treatment ASAP to prevent infection from spreading to other organ systems. Contact your state's Social Services network to see if there is a subsidized clinic in your area. Treatment can be accomplished at a university Dental School at a reduced rate. Oral Surgeon may offer extended payment plan. Good luck.

There are Mission of Mercy (MOM) free dental clinics throughout the country and also some dental offices have a community day where they offer free dental care.
Community Clinics or Dental Schools can also have free or reduced care. Social Services or state funded dental programs such as Medicaid might be something you could look into.

In brief: Dental School

Sometimes wisdom teeth are valuable asset when healthy and properly aligned, but more often, they are misaligned and require removal.
The removal of wisdom teeth is one of the most common procedures. See your dentist or OS for evaluation and x-rays.

In brief: Finance your care

Be seen at a dental school or hospital residency program, and contact your local dental society for guidance.
You can forget about removing your own rotting impacted wisdom tooth... it takes years of experience to even attempt it.
