In brief: YES........

Even if your wisdom teeth aren't causing any pain or other problems, they may cause problems at some point.
The most common problems are decay, infection and crowding or damage to other teeth. Teeth next to the wisdom teeth are more prone to developing gum problems. See your dentist to discuss your options.
