Very common, a lot of people never develop wisdom teeth. There is nothing wrong with you, it's just the way some people are. If you mean that you actually don't have them when you are little, you aren't supposed to have wisdom teeth buds yet.

What can hurt when your wisdom teeth are coming in?

Wisdom teeth also called 3rd molars usually start to erupt anywhere from 17-21 years old with excepts since everyone is different and may vary. Some people never have them come in while others may have been born without 1 or even all 4 of them. When they erupt, the teeth have to cut through bone and tissue just like all the rest of your teeth. The "extreme" pain some may feel is from not having enough jaw space for the new teeth to come in. So instead of a smooth eruption, the teeth come or try to come in slanted (called impacted molars) pushing on the 2nd molars in the mouth because there isn't enough room to turn straight and pop through. The impacted wisdom teeth can cause extreme pain, jaw ache, and infections from the whole process. Please see a dentist if you start to have such pain to avoid complications and advanced discomfort. It will not get better if erupting wisdom teeth are not extracted.
