It might help a little, but if your father or mother have gapped teeth, you probably will too. When your wisdom teeth will come out, if you have space, they might close some gaps between your back teeth. It is less likely that they will help closing the gaps between your anterior teeth.

To do so, it is better to do an orthodontic treatment.
I had gaps between my anterior teeth, like my grandfather did. It was corrected by braces in middle school within only a year. My wisdom teeth came in and still have plenty of room. I found that my teeth tend to move outward, so I still wear braces overnight at least once a week, fifteen years later.
  Although my teeth are straight, I have gaps in them due to their shape (normal teeth are triangular, mine are square) or so my dentist says. Because the teeth are already straight (not needing braces^), my dentist said the solution to my gaps is porcelain veneers. He also said that braces would only force my teeth together, and that they would constantly be moving back to their original place because they were already in the correct position. I had my wisdom teeth removed while they were still impacted. My mother also only had gaps in her upper front teeth, and when her wisdom teeth erupted they pushed her upper and bottom front teeth together, eliminating the gaps, but also causing her bottom teeth to become crooked. Waiting for you wisdom teeth to erupt is not the best solution to the gapped teeth, seeing as how they could cause other complications.
