Can removing wisdom teeth fix crowding?

The answer to this question depends on the individual case. In some instances, wisdom teeth can contribute to crowding and therefore their removal may provide some relief. However, in other cases, wisdom teeth may not be the cause of crowding and their removal will not have any impact. It is important to speak with an orthodontist to determine if wisdom teeth are the cause of your crowding issue before considering their removal.

Additionally, even if wisdom teeth are determined to be the cause of your crowding, it is not always necessary to remove them in order to fix the problem. There are a variety of orthodontic treatments that can be used to address crowding, so removal of wisdom teeth should always be considered as a last resort.

If you are considering removing your wisdom teeth in order to fix crowding, we recommend that you speak with an orthodontist to learn more about your treatment options. They will be able to assess your individual case and provide you with the best course of action.
