DearCustomer

Thank you for your question and welcome to just Answer.

An impacted wisdom tooth will not affect your blood pressure in any way. It will not affect your blood pressure even if the impacted wisdom tooth is inflamed, decayed or has an initial infection. There is an excellent article on blood pressure ind it's causes here:

I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.
