Since you are a minor (under age 18), your parents can make decisions about your health including having your wisdom teeth removed.  If your wisdom teeth are not removed, you could have future health problems. 

I felt the same way as you about this procedure when I was your age.  That was a long time ago and technology has made great strides since then which means that you may have little if any discomfort during and shortly after the procedure.
