The classical way to ease toothache is Oil of Cloves (from your Chemist). Rubbing this on and around the pain is very effective, but it is only temporary. If your wisdom teeth are impacted (growing into each other) then one of them must come out. Only your Dentist can do that, so don't delay!!! The pain won't go away until the impacting teeth are corrected....
I have to go with @NoExsitance Numb your mouth with a cold piece of ice or something really cold that is cold enough to numb it a little but... Or just go to your dentist and ask help or pain medication....
Clove is a natural remedy, but there is no 100% of getting rid of pain till tooth has come through or taken out. I let mine grow in and dealt with pain and I am just fine. Life without pain is as the thorn with no rose - an illusion of reality.

As a formal dental assistant, I can say that Ibuprofen, with it's anti-inflammatory properties, is more effective for the pain than Acetaminophen (Tylenol) for this sort of thing. The people who have recommended a topical pain reliever like Orajel have given you a bit of good advice. Not knowing your age, I can't say whether or not you are merely having pain because the wisdom teeth are just beginning to erupt (merely teething just as you did as a baby), or if those teeth have been in for awhile then the cause is most likely that you don't have enough room in your mouth for them to erupt properly, thus being impacted. If you are fortunate enough to have dental insurance, you can go straight to an oral surgeon who specializes in extracting difficult impacted wisdom teeth, or you can just go to a regular dentist, who is a bit less expensive, to see if the teeth are in a good enough position & not with irregular roots so that he/she might be able to do the extractions less expensively. It costs even less to go to a dental college.Just don't let any infections go too long without seeking treatment.
