In brief: Yes, but
Yes, but make sure your oral surgeon is aware of the med.
He/she may alter the IV sedation to account for the effects of cloxazepam. For best results with wisdom teeth, make sure you are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon.

It depends on what type of anesthesia the oral surgeon plans to use.
Sometimes they use medazolam (versed) as part of the medicine used to help you sleep during the procedure. Medazolam is the same kind of medication as clonazepam. They are also cross tolerant. Let the oral surgeon know so the anesthesia can be adjusted.

In brief: Yes.
Clonazapam is a benzodiazapine used for treating anxiety or muscle spasms.
It is safe to have wisdom teeth extracted. Make sure you inform the dentist of this and any other drugs you take including any recreational drugs such as alcohol, etc. And how much and how often you take/use them.
