No: No it should not impact or affect your bone and it is a great idea to piggyback off the jaw surgery to have the 3rd out. One surgical phase is always ideal.

Underbite: The surgeons that I respect feel that the appropriate Rx is: Remove wisdom teeth, straighten upper & lower teeth to their respective jaws, reset jaws surgically, complete the Orthodontic treatment. Please consult with both Orthodontist and Oral Surgeon.
