What happens when two substances collide

I've had some jaw pain that started about a month ago. I ignored it for a while, it's gotten steadily worse and now I'm almost certain it's due to wisdom teeth coming in. (It's on the left side only, and I have got some gum tenderness there.) Can I just call an oral surgeon and make an appointment, or do I need an assessment and referral from a dentist first?

Thanks to my shitty insurance, the closest in-network dentist is an hour away, and the closest oral surgeon is over 2 hours away. I don't have a car. How much is this going to suck? :( If I find a friend to drive me, what would be adequate compensation (in addition to gas money) for the time they will have to spend waiting around for me to get cut into?

When is the last time your body betrayed you?
This month. First I got mono, then awful random foot pain, and now wisdom teeth shit. ARGHHHH!
