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.

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.

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.

No. However, not having them removed can. Wisdom teeth are teeth that are not needed. Our mouths were designed to have them but not need them. If they come in and are not straight they are called "impacted". When they become impacted they can cause danger to the roots of other teeth. This is when they need to be removed.

Yes, extractions can cause TMJ if they are taken from the lower jaw.

It depends on who you ask. The literature on dry sockets after wisdom teeth extractions reports a range from 5-20% dry socket occurence. Most experienced oral surgeons will see fewer than 10% dry socket rate after wisdom teeth extractions. The biggest determining factor to risk is experience of the surgeon. Which means that newbies will have more dry sockets than seasoned surgeons.

A deviated septum can cause a nose to be crooked. This condition is caused by the septum of the nose being in the wrong place.

NO! You should not smoke after any extractions. Smoking may cause something called a "Dry Socket" which can be extremely painful! Ask your dentist or oral surgeon how long you should wait before smoking.

No, that can't really happen. Teeth can get cracked my a number of different things.NoIt is very unlikely that front teeth get cracked due to pressure caussed by wisdom teeth. Usually it takes a trauma to crack a tooth. NOalthough they cannot crack your teeth, they WILL cause pressure and cause your other teeth pain and make them crooked

Yes, it can. Many people aren't aware that impacted teeth, infected teeth also can involve the ear canal. This would cause vertigo and dizziness. Getting wisdom teeth pulled can be a trauma to the body and it may take a few days before you feel normal. If this keeps up please see your dentist. You could have infection.

It is recommended that you refrain from using a straw for at least ten days to two weeks following extractions. The reason is that anything that can cause suction pressure in the mouth can cause the blood clot in the socket to be lost prematurely. This can lead to a very painful condition known as a dry socket.

A number of factors need to be considered before extracting wisdom teeth. Are the teeth causing pain or likely to cause pain in the future? Are the wisdom teeth decayed, fractured, or impacted? Are the wisdom teeth compromising or causing damage to other teeth or oral tissues? If the wisdom teeth remain, is it likely they will complicate other procedures such as orthodontics or crown placements? Is the patient young enough and healthy enough to undergo the surgery? Does the likely benefit of extracting the wisdom teeth outweigh the potential harm or complications of extractions? If any or all of these questions are answered 'yes' then extractions are usually indicated. Most people do not have enough room in their jaws for the wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are almost never necessary for proper chewing or attractive appearance. Wisdom teeth are often very difficult to adequately clean. On the flip side, there are other questions: Are there any contraindications (prohibitions) in the patient's medical, mental, emotional, or familial status? Does the patient, primary caregiver, or guardian withhold their consent? If these questions are answered 'yes' then extraction is not proper.

Your orthodontist should be able to answer this question. In some cases, there is enough room for your wisdom teeth to come in without overcrowding. There shouldn't be any real "danger" except that they may cause your teeth to become crooked which is why most people have them removed eventually.

Yes, wisdom teeth coming in can cause headaches and soar throats too.

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.

she was powerful cause she was the goddess of wisdom

A dry socket is when the blood clot that is part of the healing process comes out. If this happens it could cause the healing to slow, and could also cause an infection. To avoid dislodging the clot :Avoid spitting for the first few daysDon't smoke.Don't drink soda or hot liquidsDon't drink through a strawFollow the Dental Surgeon's instructions and you will be fine. Most wisdom tooth extractions heal well and will soon become less sensitive.

Bones will not cause the arm to be in a straight position, instead, muscle and tendons will cause the arm to be straight.

This is a common misconception about 3rd Molars (Wisdom teeth). Not every person who's third molars come in will need to have them removed. Sometimes they grow in perfectly normal in alignment and position and therefore do not present a problem. However, should the molars come in crooked (impacted) or have a high risk of pushing other teeth out of alignment, then they will need to be surgically removed. The main reason for third molar extraction is because of the reasons listed above, not only can they cause periodontal infections, they can cause other teeth to be pushed out of alignment, causing damage to not only the sockets but nerves. If a dentist says they should be removed, ask to look at the x-rays, If you see the teeth all the way in the back on top and bottom are sideways or crooked, then he's right. If you notice they are perfectly straight (like your normal molars) then the need for removal can wait.

No. Cracking the knuckles does not damage tot he joint.

If you have general anaesthesia performed during your extractions, the anesthesiologists (or oral surgeons) place an endotracheal tube into your windpipe to help you breathe. This can cause the throat to become sore after it is removed. Even if you do not get intubated (have a tube placed into your throat), the tissues in your throat can become dehydrated, thus causing a sore throat.

Yes expressly if they are impacted

If you Swallow it you can choke....

Wisdom teeth coming in does not normally cause swelling or tightness in the throat. The most common side effect is a sore jaw.
