In brief: Apples/oranges

2 different issues.
See an orthodontic specialist for evaluation of your individual malocclusion. The orthodontist can then give you approximate treatment time. Allow at least 2 weeks healing time after wisdom teeth removal before placing braces.

If you're talking about a single impaction, such as a canine, the timing and progress of the impaction correction is sequenced by your Orthodontic Specialist. Ask him/her for your personal time table.

There is no scientific proof that wisdom teeth cause crowding.
If you have been thinking about undergoing orthodontic treatment (braces) the first step is scheduling an orthodontic consultation. Your wisdom teeth surgery is irrelevant. Hope it helps.
