Do you have the wisdom teeth?

When people are about 20 years old, some may have wisdom teeth. They are the last teeth to grow for human beings. Usually it will be painful when they grow. I have four wisdom teeth, but three of them were pulled out some years ago. Now one wisdom tooth remains. Hopefully it needn't to be pulled out. It's not a pleasant experience.

I agree with you. Nobody wants it because the wisdom teeth are useless.

I'm almost 29 but I've only got one wisdom tooth. It started growing only a few months ago. I hope none of the others come out later on. No space left!!!

My only wisdom tooth was to emerge during my late twenties. Of course I suffered from painful gum for quite some time before it got to grow fully. The dentist advised me to keep it as half of it still could be used for chewing. I considered it as a bonus for me so that I could have an extra molar on my left upper jaw. I believe a natural molar is very much better than an artificial tooth. By name the wisdom tooth signifies wisdom, so you must be very wise as you have four of them. Whereas I have only one, so I ... lol...

I had all four of my wisdom teeth pulled when I was 25 years old. They did two at a time. The last two had to be cut out. No, having teeth pulled are not a very pleasant experience.

You are so brave. I can't imagine to pull out two wisdom teeth at the same time.

I cant say that i know what you are talking about where toothache is concerned. Mine have been growing from i was 12 and they are still growing at 38. It is not painful, thank God, but the gum is sometimes red and a little sore. Nothing to complain abt. Sorry for the pain you are going through and I wish I could help. Maybe Excedrin woould help?

It seems if you don't have the wisdom teeth, then your other teeth will probably grow healthily.

wisdom teeth?i guess i have never had wisdom teeth before.coz i never felt painful when growing teeth. but if the wisdom teeth are the last,then i think their will be one,i don't think we can grow several teeth at a time and happens to be the last.

It's good that your wisdom teeth hasn't grown yet. It's better they never show up:)

My wisdom teeth started coming in when I was 18, and I had them pulled that summer before they got a chance to come all the way in. They told me it would be easier to just have them taken out before they had a chance to grow in all the way. It definitely was not a pleasant experience! The first few days was really awful and I had to get some extra medication cause my body was going nuts. lol Anyway, I'm glad it's all over with now! hehe

Pulling out the wisdom teeth isn't easy at all. Perhaps they just want you to relax.

I'm 24 and have three wisdom teeth which have not been removed. They should be as they're cramping my mouth and causing my other teeth to grow a bit crooked, but my teeth have always been a bit crooked so there isn't much difference. Plus my dentist referred me to an orthodontist who tried to convince me I needed very expensive invisable braces even though they knew I had no such money, so I'm angry with them both and am considering getting a second opinion somewhere else. My wisdom teeth don't hurt me, I don't suffer from any discomfort and my teeth have never been perfect. I'm used to it by now.

You are right. If there is nothing wrong with your wisdom teeth, just leave them alone.

Yup, I still have mine. 3 of them have actually come through fine. One is impacted. There is no way I am having the surgery just to remove one. It hasn't given me any trouble yet. Hopefully it stays that way.I had a 12 year molar pulled and that was bad enough.
