Do I need to use re-directs when changing from _ to -?

If I have an existing site that I want to re-do with xsite pro and the existing spaces between words are underlines (_) and I want to change them to hyphens(-) in the new version, will the page come up not found if I do nothing?
In other words if someone searches on a bookmark or an ad that was for the former site,will the underscore versus hyphen cause the page to come up not found? Do I need to learn now about re-directs? thanks to any that may reply.
