As the wisdom teeth erupt they can place a lot of pressure on the rest of the dentition (teeth in the mouth). The result can be a shifting of the teeth. The proper dentist to see first is your general dentist who may refer you to an oral surgeon to have the wisdom teeth extracted and then an orthodontist to have the teeth straightened.
