Seek care: Then there is no reason to wait for anything here - immediately make an appointment and see your dentist and your physician. Do not wait any longer!
A female asked:

Clarification: It's a bit difficult to understand your question. I assume you want to know if your "bite will change" if only 3rd molars are removed. That is unlikely. The teeth marks in cheeks are not unusual unless the tissue is continually injured. You need an examination and assessment by your dentist to truly answer these questions.

See orthodontist: Any device held between teeth over long period of time has the potential to move them as a side-effect. Seek an opinion with an orthodontic specialist to determine what can be done to correct your occlusion and yet take caution with your jaw symptoms.
