Shifting Teeth FAQ Ask The Dentist Corinne Scalzitti Question:
I am 45 years old and all 4 wisdom teeth grew in perfectly - no problems.

However, I have shifting of 2 teeth on the bottom front. Will having the wisdom teeth pulled possibly correct the shifting without braces or Invisaline? ... Visitor from TX

Teeth continue to shift all our lives.

The wisdom teeth may have contributed to the crowding, but removing them now will most likely not have any effect on reversing it.

Invisalign would be a good solution to the crowding, but you will need permanent retention in the form of a wire on the inside of the lower teeth, or retainers forever if you don't want this to happen again.
