With smallish jaw, should I get wisdom teeth removed or wait until they push on the molars?

In brief: Schedule a consult

You should have a thorough clinical and panoramic x-ray to determine the position and development of your wisdom teeth.
Most surgeons prefer to remove an impacted wisdom tooth before the roots are fully developed or causing problems with the adjacent teeth.

In brief: Wisdom teeth

Wait until they give you trouble.
You may have a hard time extracting them as you have a small jaw.
