Teeth Need to Come Out, Not Come In Feet First

I've waited too long, I need my wisdom teeth out now. They have just started hurting. Complication, no dental insurance or really any money. Help?

I got a quote from my old dentist, at like $700 (anesthesia not included. I really want anesthesia, two of my wisdom teeth are upside down). That is almost precisely all the money I have. I have since moved. Dentists around here won't give me a quote unless I come in for a cleaning, which is not unreasonable, except then I have to pay ~$60 to even get a quote. Is there another way to get this done I am not aware of? Thank you in advance for the help.
