Wisdom teeth often interfere with Invisalign trays

If the wisdom teeth have erupted (you can see them) then they may interfere with seating the trays used for Invisalign treatment.  If your treating Dr says they should come out, then they probably should.


If they have not erupted, then it won't be a factor.

As the other dentists have stated, if the molars are erupted they may interfere with the fit of the trays, if they are not erupted then they won't be a factor.  Find out what your dentists says about them

With Invisalign treatment, wisdom teeth removed are always recommended. Now this does not mean you can not do Invisalign, but keep in mind the overall results of straighning your teeth is more predictable. Keep in mind, you do not need your wisdom teeth, they can cause problems later (gum disease, tooth decay, infection, etc)
