I have braces now, but my wisdom teeth (bottom molars) are very crowded. Should my dentist extract my wisdom teeth to make my teeth straight?
How to Straighten Wisdom Teeth?

Extracting the wisdom teeth would be preferable
In most cases, wisdom teeth are an unnecessary nuisance and removing them is the best treatment option. While there are a few instances that indicate keeping a wisdom tooth, it would be better for you to have them extracted to prevent complications in the future. Talk to your dentist to see what is best for you.
