Wisdom coming in, but the gum keeps on trying to cover it up

J

My bottom right wisdom tooth is coming in and it's giving me problems. Its swelling and hurts really bad. It's coming in straight but the gum keeps trying to cover it up. The bottom left one came in with no problem. I didn't even feel it at all. i didn't even know it was there until this started. The top left one is coming in and I don't feel that one either. Do I need to see a dentist? Or will it come in with time, pain, and suffering? I've been using benzocaine 20% for the gum pain and 600mg ibuprofen for swelling every 5 hours. It seems to work but the pain still wakes me up at night and I start my junior year of school soon. What should I do?

Thanks,
JahnDough
