If the tooth is completely covered by the gum it is unlikely to cause pain. If the tooth is partially erupted and especially if there is a flap of skin partially covering the tooth there is potential for trouble in the form of pain/infections.

If the teeth are not causing problems we generally leave them in place, a possible exception being if there is food trapping resulting in foul taste/smell and possible decay in the tooth next to it.

It has not been proven that a wisdom tooth pushing through can cause a domino effect resulting in crowding up the front teeth, so this is not a justification on its own to have teeth removed.

If the tooth is tilted forward bacteria can cause a cavity in the back of the tooth next to it so it is important to have it removed or monitor it regularly on an X-ray
