I have an underbite problem, should I extract wisdom teeth?

  1. Hi, friends,

    I am in my early 30s and I have a little underbite problem. I wanna
    correct this.

    I also have 4 wisdom teeth. Will it help to extract the 4 wisdom teeth
    before I do orthodontics to correct my underbite problem? Right now,
    my wisdom teeth are not bothering me at all.

    We can't tell from here - it won't help with the underbite but may be a
    complicating factor if you choose to have orthodontic treatment

    .. Most orthodontists will give a consultation at no cost. They will need
    to see a radiograph (x-ray) to evaluate your third molars ( wisdom teeth).
    Check with your regular dentist to find out if there is a recent radiograph
    of that area. If not expect to be charged by the ortho for the x-ray. Then
    you can be advised about both the underbite and wisdom teeth.
