Ask a dentist: Please ask your dentist or oral surgeon. It depends on a number of factors such as whether there is an infection, which way they face, how easy or difficult to get medical attention. Here is an article to look at: http://patient.info/health/wisdom-teeth

Wisdom Teeth: Depending on the angulation of the teeth and the size of your mouth, there may not quite be enough room for them. If you're getting a sore from your maxillary teeth which are angled buccally and hitting your mandible, you should really have them removed... you don't need them. Consult with your dentist for more info.
