Sometimes: Sometimes wisdom teeth are removed because they are causing problems. Sometimes they are removed because of high potential for problems in the future. Sometimes they can erupt into functional cleanable positions and require no treatment. Sometimes problem potential is borderline and requires active observation. See a wisdom tooth specialist, an Oral Surgeon, for most informed opinion.
