    If you were prescribed penicillin, you should take it. Freedom from infection will help you heal faster.

    Penicillin prevents or kills off any germs that would make you sick and hinder your recovery. {If I recall correctly, you should be prescribed amoxicillan.}

    The penicillin is to stop an infection from occurring in the jaw because wisdom tooth extraction is a minor surgery and the mouth is full of bacteria.  You should take the full course prescribed by the doctor.
