Is it possible for my crowded teeth to move back into position after my wisdom teeth are extracted?

Usually Not. Once teeth move out of normal position, they generally will not go back, even with removal of wisdom teeth that may have contributed to their movement.
Uncrowding. Without a force in the opposite direction, uncrowding is unlikely to happen. Removal of the wisdom teeth eliminated the impetus causing crowding, but nonetheless, there still remains a lack of any guiding force in the opposing direction. .
Tooth movement. Very unlikely and unfortunate at the same time. There are biological reasons that are too detailed to summarize here which would make this almost impossible. Not to mention that space is made in the back of the mouth and most crowding is in the front. The place where you probably need room is most likely in the front. Visit with an orthodontist for more options.
Not likely. It is highly unlikely for teeth to uncrowd spontaneously. Braces are usually necessary.
No. You'll need orthodontic treatment to correct the crowding.
Doesn't happen. The poor wisdom teeth only contribute about 10% to your crowding problem. Teeth want to move forward and erupt, not move back. If wisdom teeth a problem see oral surgeon for removal. If teeth are crowded, see orthodontist for realignment. You'll be glad you did.

Will removing wisdom teeth help my crowded teeth?

No. In almost most cases, removing wisdom teeth will not un-crowd your existing teeth in any way or to any significant extent. However, the orthodontist might suggest having your wisdom teeth removed as part of the total treatment plan. Other teeth sometimes have to be removed in order to make enough room in order to unravel the bite. Read more...

Studies say NO. This is a controversial subject in orthodontic circles. Multiple studies indicate no relation between wisdom teeth and lower incisor crowding. An exquisite study done at ohsu by kaplan et. Al. Studied 1000 patients and found no correlation. Little et al. Found that lower incisor crowding is due to overbite deepening causing lower incisor crowding with age, starting in the early 20's. Read more...

I had my wisdom teeth removed. Will the remaining crowded teeth spread backwards by themselves?

No, unfortunately. No, the only way to "uncrowd" or straighten the teeth at this point will be orthodontics ( braces or invisalign ). Read more...
Sadly, not possible. The wisdom teeth were never preventing them from "drifting" back so their removal will not stimulate them to spontaneously move. There is also no force being applied to the teeth to cause them to move. Read more...
Not likely. Teeth want to drift forward, not back, with or without wisdom teeth. Crowding does not self-correct, it gets worse with age. If front teeth are crowded, ask your dentist to refer you to an orthodontic specialist for discussion of treatment options. You owe it to yourself to at least explore options. Read more...

Depends. Depends on the postioning of the wisdom teeth in relation to your other teeth. Having wisdom teeth extracted can free up some space if the teeth are butting up against your molars, but it will not be enough to straigten out already crooked teeth. A full workup with your dentist/orthodontist will give you a much better answer. Read more...
Nope. Removing 3rd molars will simply not allow the rest of the permanent teeth to "spontaneously" move backwards in the mouth to resolve crowding. Read more...
