Wisdom Teeth Extraction: Is bone grafting necessary?

I'm getting all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed, and my oral surgeon recommended that I get a bone graft for my bottom left wisdom tooth that'll be removed. My friends never had bone grafts done, so I was wondering if it's necessary since I'd have to pay more money out of pocket. Thanks!

Note: The picture is flipped. The right side (as you see in the picture) is actually the left side of my jaw.

Normally need to meet clinical criteria of existing bone loss to require bone graft. Not normally routine unless you want to part with more $$$. Maybe get a second opinion.
