Can Wisdom tooth extraction change face shape?

In brief: Normally not

The alignment of the wisdom teeth are often not the determining factor in facial symmetry.
If the other teeth start shifting, etc., then there could be some changes.

In brief: Temporary

With postop swelling, your face will be rounder. After swelling subsides, no change in face shape.
For best results with wisdom teeth, make sure you are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon.
