All my wisdom teeth were pulled. I had 3 remaining when I was commissioned an Army Officer. I was already in the Army 4 years at that point, but when I went to an Army dentist for an unrelated cavity, I was informed I would be getting all my wisdom teeth pulled, even though 2 weren't bad, and 1 was slightly impacted.
That was Army policy in 1973 (I have no idea what it is now). They considered it preventative dentistry, to make sure no Officer would be sidelined by a sudden wisdom tooth problem during combat or other remote deployment, in a location where full dental care would not be available. And a wisdom tooth problem can require major dental surgery.
They were removed over several weeks, and the pain was never an issue. I didn't bother using the narcotic drugs they gave me, I was too busy with my duties to allow myself to be impaired in any way. But with one removal it wouldn't stop bleeding.
That night I kept stuffing rags in my mouth (don't even say it), and they'd come out soaked with blood, one after another. Finally I asked another Lieutenant to drive me to the ER, where they repacked the socket, and that solved it.
Other than that it was pretty routine, even back in 1973. I'd recommend following the doctor's guidance.
