I am finally getting all four of my wisdom teeth in and none of them are impacted, thankfully. :)
But only one came in slightly crooked, should I get it removed or should I get any of them removed, since they aren't bothering me? Only once in a while I have to ice my jaw for the slightly crooked one on my lower jawline. Should I get them all removed or just the slightly crooked one that only hurts a bit at times, but not very often?

I was told many, many years ago to have my wisdom teeth removed because one of them on top was coming in cooked.
I said SO WHAT! Is it going to affect the other teeth by making them crooked or move them? I was told no. Then let them be :)
The top ones are hard to brush & get cavities. When that happened I told the dentist to just drill on an angle. Reluctantly she did. Recently the time came when the dentist "claimed" there wasn't enough tooth left to fill it. (just like a molar that would need a crown) That's when I decided to have the top 2 removed. I kept the bottom ones because they are easier to brush & fill if needed.
I'm not unhappy that I waited. I guess it's pull me now or pull me later. In your case you occasionally have to ice your jaw. Not a big deal. As I wrote pull me now or later.
Personally I'd wait.0
