Should I get my wisdom teeth out before I have braces?
If you are planning to have braces to straighten your teeth, any impacted wisdom teeth may get in the way and make straightening your other teeth more difficult. In these cases, they should be removed before or after starting orthodontic treatment. Your orthodontist or dentist will advise you if this is necessary.
