if this is a first episode and pain subsides in three days, you can wait for another episode of pain. I advise you to get a consultation done to assess the condition. Tooth removal can be planned if mandatory on clinical assessment.
It looks like you have a errupting third molar (wisdom tooth) kindly visit a dentist who will advise you to remove the tooth if it is not errupting correctly. In the mean time do salt water rinses for symtomatic relief.
