In brief: Yes

A rare complication of wisdom tooth extraction is a fractured jaw.
Another reason to have your wisdom teeth extracted by an oral surgeon.

If you think you have a problem please have it evaluated and treated as soon as possible. Waiting may be counter-productive.

In brief: Yes

Fracture of the jaw is a very rare event in tooth extraction.
It is has a higher incidence in patients with severe osteoporosis. Excessive force during the extraction can also contribute.
