Have them out: Most people's mouths are not big enough for all 32 teeth so we have our wisdom teeth removed. I suspect that the best course of action for you will be to have the other three removed as they come in. You should discuss this with your dentist at your next appointment.

Depends: Do u have the other three? Not everyone gets all 4. They can not deform ur other teeth but they can result in crowding them.

Deform?: If you are asking will erupting wisdom teeth make your front teeth crooked, the answer is 10%. 90% of destabilization of front teeth is caused by other developmental actors. See an Oral Surgeon to evaluate your wisdom teeth, hopefully he/she will tell you to expect normal eruption. If your teeth do begin to shift, at any time in your life, see an Orthodontist immediately. Don't wait.

Wisdom teeth: Unerupted or partially erupted wisdom teeth can cause jaw pain and infection. There is an increased chance of damage, or decay in the neighboring tooth. Since most people do not have enough room for wisdom tooth see a dentist and have your wisdom teeth checked.
