Does removing wisdom teeth change face shape?

There is no definitive answer to this question as everyone’s face is different and will respond differently to having wisdom teeth removed. However, it is generally accepted that removing wisdom teeth can slightly change the shape of your face, particularly if they are impacted (growing in at an angle). This is because when wisdom teeth are removed, there is often some shifting of the other teeth in the mouth. Additionally, removal of wisdom teeth can cause changes in the appearance of the jawline and cheeks. Ultimately, whether or not removing wisdom teeth will change your face shape significantly is dependent on the individual.
