It depends on what the x-ray shows. the specialist must have a good reason why you should remove the teeth (possibly an infetion?)
without having seen the x-rays I am unable to say

I just had my 4 wisdom teeth removed. I am 35 years old and it' s been 10 years since my dentist first told me to remove my wisdoms .also didn' t have any problems or pain with it. This year I went for 3 opinions and 2 said that they had to be removed. When I had the operation they found that I already had a small abses on the one side. It' s not that painful , arnica tablets helps a lot for the swelling and bruising.
