I Waited to have my wisdom teeth removed because of all your reasons and had them removed at age 35. The surgeon had a hard time removing left lower wisdom tooth (took longest to remove, only tooth in pieces ) I developed deep Pocket, my regular dentist later told me to go back to surgeon because there were visible scar tissue poking out of wholes tissue that was not allowing me to make a complete bite on left side. I had scar tissue removed (this should be documented) so health care will cover any further cost. Unfortunately after years I noticed small keloids forming on left cheek and had to get steroid injections of Kenalog and mix of anti cancer drug was only treatment that worked to reduce size and growth. I  still have problems. Find someone who treats people who scar it's important!
