In brief: Need eval

Sometimes the wisdom teeth do not erupt completely because there is not enough space for them. And there can be gum tissue that remains around them. These teeth would need to be extracted.
The best thing you can do si the have an evaluation by a dentist and find out what is happening in your mouth with your wisdom teeth.

In brief: Hard to say

Each tooth on each patient is a bit different.
Call an oral surgeon in your area for a consultation to see what's best for your specific situation.

In brief: Wisdom teeth

Have all four of your wisdom teeth checked by your own dentist.
Both a clinical exam and x-rays are necessary in order to properly answer that question. Each tooth has to be evaluated on its own. The angle of your wisdom teeth as well as the amount of room in your mouth will help determine whether or not your wisdom teeth should be removed or wait to see if they erupt normally.
