In brief: Depends

Not all impacted teeth need to be removed but there is a risk for further problem if it is left there.
You need a consultation with a dentist or oral surgeon that would perform the procedure. Many people never have their impacted teeth removed and never have a prob. Depends on location and orientation of the tooth.
