    Hello,
    I waited to get my wisdom teeth taken out and over the last 6 months my lower teeth have shifted a bit as the wisdom teeth have been putting a lot of pressure on my teeth and jaw. I finally had my wisdom teeth extracted this week. My question is will the remaining teeth shift/spread out now the impaction is gone?

    Yes, because it is an old-wive's tale that wisdom teeth cause your other teeth to crowd in the front. That is simply not true.
