It depends on the tooth and how it is in your mouth. Some wisdom teeth can be removed without surgery and some need surgery. The hole doesn't really affect needing surgery or not.

Wisdom teeth, if bothersome, usually are pulled. Most dentists prefer you see an oral surgeon just in case their should be any problems (generally there isn't.)

Just a little info as to why we have to put up with these miserable little additions in our mouth, here is why some people have them:

As you know we have changed with evolution, and thousands of years ago we had wider jaws, and needed more teeth. As our faces and bodies slimmed down to suit our generations to come, and unfortunately, for some, we have been blessed with wisdom teeth. They are useless and if they bother you in any way (even very sore gums back in your jaw ... this means the wisdom tooth is not quite coming through) it is best to have them removed.

Good luck Marcy

Is it possible for an adult to not need any wisdom teeth removed if they've never grown in or threatened the growth of the other teeth?

If you have wisdom teeth and they haven't come in normally, you need to have them removed. And possiblly even if they have come in. They are so far back it's very hard to keep them properly cleaned. It's better to get them removed as a young adult rather than an older person. It's also better to get them removed before they start causing problems. Most dentists recommend to extract wisdom teeth, even if there are no symptoms, to prevent future complications. For adults over 30 years old, most dentist would not remove wisdom teeth because the roots are completely formed and the bone around them is dense. Extraction would be indicated only if there are symptoms. It is not necessary. my dad's wisdom teeth are all still intact and he has never had a need to take them out.
