In brief: No

If you mean imbalanced, or asymmetrical, no.
You will not notice any difference, assuming the rest of your teeth are intact. Ask your dentist the same question.

In brief: Uneven?

Uneven in numbers? Yes, but of no consequence in any way.
Each side may have different circumstances that may warrant different treatment procedures or end results. Spaces between teeth is a problem, not missing last teeth.

In brief: More than that

Wisdom teeth should be removed if they are leading to problems.
Your dentist will need to examine you to determine if these are problematic.

In brief: No

No, the uneven jaw is due to growth not the wisdom teeth.
