Yes, they can be and should be removed. The only reason it's suggested to get them out when you are younger is because you are more likely to recover faster and there is less chance of caries. If you have cavity on a tooth, it should be treated, either by repairing the tooth, or in cases of semi-impacted wisdom teeth, the tooth should be extracted.
