Sure: Are you waiting for the unrestorable wisdom tooth to cause a major infection? Your body is telling you something is amiss.. seek the care of an oral surgeon immediately and avoid a tremendous amount of swelling and pain. The tooth needs to come out.

Possibly: cracked tooth may mean the inside of the tooth is infected - infections can lead to swelling of local galnds
