Wisdom teeth do not necessarily crowd teeth. Some people who have had their wisdom teeth removed still get crowding, while others that still have their third molars erupted or impacted do not have crooked teeth.

Not necessarily. Teeth tend to become more crowed as we age, especially the lower front teeth. This happens in some people regardless of whether they have wisdom teeth or not. Therefore, removing the wisdom teeth, solely for the purpose of hoping to get naturally straighter teeth, won't work.

How do you make your wisdom teeth grow straight when there is no second molar?

Unfortunately, there is no way to "make" your wisdom teeth grow in straight. If your other teeth are straight, then they may grow in straight. If you have a tendency towards crooked teeth, they they may grow crooked too. The good news is that not everyone has to have them removed if they grow in crooked. If there is sufficient room and they will not cause problems with the other teeth, they may not have to be removed. With no 2nd molar, there might be enough room that they do not have to be removed. The best person to make this determination is your dentist.

Can wisdom teeth cause enlarged lymph nodes or an enlarged spleen?

I had an enlarged spleen and enlarged lymph nodes and it turned out that I had Mono. I don't think your "spleen" has anything to do with your wisdom teeth coming in. But, in uncommon cases, infection to your wisdom teeth can sometimes cause enlarged lymph nodes, but only if the teeth are "impacted". A dental impaction is where an unearthed tooth is growing in crooked underneath the gumline. This also causes other dental problems such as crooked teeth. If the lymph nodes your are referring to are painless and are swelling with other symptoms, then you might have a serious condition, which also means you need to see a doctor immediately. The swelling in the lymph nodes in your neck are the ones to swell if your teeth are infected from an impaction. Also, only the lower teeth can cause lymph node swelling in your neck. The nodes will be tender, moveable, and causing pain in any way. Any kind of severe infection in your mouth, including a wisdom tooth infection, can cause your lymph nodes to become larger. The spleen should not be directly affected though.

Wisdom teeth do not need to be pulled when: 1) there is room in your mouth for them; 2) they are not stuck under the skin (impacted); 3) they are healthy. But most people do not have enough room in their mouths so the teeth grow behind or crooked and/or they get impacted and cannot grow out.

Why is wisdom tooth bad?

Wisdom teeth are not necessarily bad. They do, however, frequently cause crowding in the mouth, forcing the molars forward resulting in crooked teeth. They can also become impacted or fail to fully erupt (emerge through the gums), causing discomfort and potential for decay or gum disease. Dentists often recommend removal of wisdom teeth in younger people if problems are foreseen; if you make it through your twenties with no troubles, you'll most likely be fine. If you have any issues with any of your wisdom teeth, most dentists will recommend removal of all four, as asymmetry in the mouth can result in other problems. By all accounts, extraction of the wisdom teeth kind of sucks.

Why do you have to have your wisdom teeth extracted when they come in?
