Wisdom tooth to be pulled before scaling. Can space between teeth filled after that?

i had a dentist appointment for the first time in a very long time. im a 22yr old female. i was told that i had to have a scaling done but first have to get my wisdom teeth pulled. i can t remember if my dentist said i had periodontal or just a bad case of gingivits. i now also have a space between my bottome front teeth and i was wondering if after getting my wisdom teeth pulled and get the scaling done if there was a way i could possibly get the space filled in

hello and welcome to HCM forum,
yes there is a way out to get the space filled which is present in the lower front teeth,
your dentist knows better that whether the scaling needs to be done first or the extraction of your wisdom tooth,
Ideally you should get your teeth cleaned every 6 months, as well take measures to maintain your oral hygiene.
there are number of options as to how a dentist can fill up the gaps between your teeth, and to decide which option will be best for you, we need to check your teeth clinically.
as i cannot do that, therefore i can only tell you what all options are available,
1. composites,
2. bridge(FPD),
4.orthodontic treatment.
you can ask your dentist about all of this and then he/she will let you know, which one will be the best for you,
i wish you good health.
