hello, you can do warm salt water rinses as a home remedy, but this will give you temporary relief from pain. the best treatment for wisdom tooth is to get it extracted.

Depends on case to case. Simple, if it is 'Verticle' and if there is an opposing-teeth get RCT done, if it is angulated and opposing is missing get it extracted.
