Depends: The answer will depend upon which problem is the more acute problem. Generally, if you have asymptomatic impacted wisdom teeth indicated for removal and decay in other teeth, it would be more prudent to take care of the decayed teeth first to prevent additional damage, and then have your wisdom teeth removed. If you have teeth that cannot be restored, they can be removed with the wisdom teeth.
