Is it common practice to extract impacted wisdom teeth. Is it common practise to extract the molars infront of the impacted wisdom teeth instead. If impacted wisdom teeth are not extracted what complications can this cause later on in life. Can extractions or removal of bone change the contour of your jaw bone

If the wisdom tooth is not causing you any pain then there is no need to extract the tooth, in most cases. If you are having frequent pain in the area which comes and goes or trismus (inability to open mouth) then your dentist might suggest an impaction. But again the opinions might vary from dentists to dentists and your individual case scenario. All the best..
