Your wisdom teeth can shift your other teeth and make them more crooked. I'm the same age as you and my dentist recommended I get my wisdom teeth out several years ago so that they wouldn't undo all the work that my braces did.

Yes, that is one reason why they take the wisdoms out. I have a small mouth so the dentist wanted mine out before anything could happen. I had them out as a teenager.

Yes, and getting the wisdom tooth out doesn't prevent it completely. Invest in some retainers if you are concerned.

Yep. Even after getting my wisdom teeth out, my top row of teeth have shifted. Ive had braces so it's really noticeable.

GONE! GONE!
Oh yes, they can. You need a retainer. And sometimes, even a retainer can't stop the shifting.
I already had braces but because they messed up on one tooth, there was a domino effect and now all my teeth are worse than before!
