Should I remove all four wisdom teeth if only one of them is bad?

    One of my wisdom teeth is grown crooked, and the dentist said that I should remove all four of them, because if not, the other wisdom teeth will start growing infinitely, because there will be no "sister tooth" for it to rely on. Is it just fairy tales to get more money or is it real and I should remove all four?

    I don't think that you need to remove all the wisdom tooth if they are not creating any problem and growing normally.
    Acc. to me you should consult with some other doctor and then take a decision.
    But you should remove your crooked wisdom tooth else it will create problem.
