Hanging Wisdom Tooth

The wisdom tooth on the right side of my jaw is only half out. And it pains a lot occasionally which is getting in the way of chewing food. Can this be due to the tooth coming out entirely or will this continue? Should I get it checked?

Wisdom teeth that are not erupting correctly are best removed. It will  continue to irritate the soft tissue surrounding the area and increase the discomfort. Tc
