Generally, I'd recommend getting your wisdom teeth removed. I had all four removed at once by an excellent malifaxial (sp?) surgeon. I was put under and the procedure took about 45 minutes. I remember going to sleep and being awakened and being dillusional from all the drugs I was put under. After the novicane wore off I started feeling pain in the back of my mouth which lasted three days. Not only that, two days after that I attempted going into work only to almost faint in the car. Now a couple of months after I still have large cracks in the gums from where the teeth once were.
Also, the biggest concern after getting your wisdom teeth removed is Dry Socket, that is, when the clots that should have turned into new gum tissue get pulled or sucked out of the sockets exposing the bare bone and nerve running through the lower jaw to the open air, which causes considerable jaw pain throughout the lower jaw. Generally you will be perscribed antibiotics if this occurs. A doctor can explain the rest of this better, but that's generally how it goes. Good luck with your teeth
[add]: Also, try not to be nervous before the surgery, as it will take increased drugs to knock you out. Just remember, in your case the procedure will probably be very routine and you'll probably be very happy once your wisdom teeth are out.

I don't know, so this is my signature.
