Hi tinksplace,
Wisdom teeth may cause a considerable amount of pain especially if there isn't enough room for them or if they are incorrectly angled/ impacted. Most larger universities have schools of dentistry where they can provide low cost or free dental treatment. I certainly hope that you have had an evaluation.
