Yes! Wisdom teeth are mainly recommended for extraction when you have inadequate space, ill-positioned eruption, extensive decay, or the person is a high risk for carries (cavities). Note, just because they have not hurt you does not indicate that you do not fall into any of those major categories. To be sure, you should check with your dental provider.
Yes you can. Don't remove your wisdom teeth unless there is a medically necessary reason.
Yes, as long as you are able to clean them and there are no cavities in them.
Of course if there is no pathology and they are comfortable and they are in good shape without any dental decay They could be there a lifetime
