This can cause a type of domino effect with the rest of the teeth in the mouth including making the front teeth appear very crowded. This is one reason that extraction may be elected. Additionally, the wisdom teeth can do damage to the surrounding gums given how they come in. They could tear the gum and cause sores. This could ultimately lead to infection of the gum, tooth and/or jaw. An abscess may occur needing the tooth to be removed.
