You don't unless they are causing a problem. I still have 2 of mine inside the gums, they are fine, and its been 20+ years since I had to have the other 2 removed because they emerged too far back to brush and decayed.

I'm a dental hygienist, and we don't always recommend the removal of wisdom teeth, or 3rd molars. Geoffrey is on the right page with Dr. Price's publication. I can say that very few people are able to properly clean these teeth even if they do have enough room, so as a preventive measure, it's not a bad idea.
I still have my wisdom teeth. they're not causing much pain really. I'm too chicken to get them removed because 1. Trust issues, especially with people in my mouth, and pulling a tooth I heard could damage your nerves. 2. The gas mask thing has never ever worked for me, it's like i'm immune, also I'm too afraid of getting that needle thing in my hand to put me to sleep, so I'd be sedated. 3. I don't want to have a week or 2 worth of pain. 4. I'm REALLY afraid of getting dry socket. I heard it is the worst pain imaginable, worse than the actual operation and healing process.
