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.

Can your wisdom teeth cause crooked teeth?

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.

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.

Do wisdom tooth extractions affect other teeth?

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.

It depends on who you ask. The literature on dry sockets after wisdom teeth extractions reports a range from 5-20% dry socket occurence.

Which means that newbies will have more dry sockets than seasoned surgeons.

If you are eleven and you are going to get braces is there any danger if your wisdom teeth are beginning to come in?

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.

How long until you can use a straw after wisdom teeth extraction?

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.

Do wisdom teeth have to be pulled out?

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.

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.

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.
