Yes. If your mouth is big enough, like mine is, there is no need to remove the wisdom teeth. I know many people who have all of their wisdom teeth, or only had 1 or 2 removed.

32 teeth are in the human mouth.

There are four wisdom teeth in a normal human being. Wisdom teeth are the very last four teeth that grow. They grow at the very end of the jaw - two upper and two lower. Wisdom teeth start appearing in the teens. Wisdom teeth can also appear towards the end of teenage. If there is no space in the jaw for the teeth to come out, then these are removed.

Including wisdom teeth, adult humans should have 32 teeth

Theoretically, 32. But almost all adult human beings have their wisdom teeth - or at least some of them - extracted, reducing the number of total teeth accordingly (there are four wisdom teeth).

Most people will develop a total of 32 'adult' teeth. Many have the last 4 of these - known as wisdom teeth removed. The number in your mouth depends on your age and dental health.

32 if you count wisdom teeth, also called 3rd molars 28 if you are born without wisdom teeth or have them removed due to lack of room

The normal complement of teeth in adult humans (including wisdom teeth) is 32. Some people do not get wisdom teeth (3rd molars) and their normal dentition is 28.

It varies. There are always "abnormalities" and some people don't develop 3rd molars (or what is called "wisdom teeth") , but the quick answer is 16 on the top, 16 on the bottom.

32. 4 incisors. 4 premolars and 4 molars. Top and bottom. Also 2 canines and 2 wisdom teeth per plate.

NO! Taking out your wisdom teeth is orthodox but offers no significant advantages over leaving your wisdom teeth in. However, many orthodontists think that for those with a smaller mouth it's the best thing to do.

Teeth? Barring having their wisdom teeth removed (or never came in), an adult has 32 teeth and a child has 20 teeth in a full mouth.

The normal complement of teeth in adult humans (including wisdom teeth) is 32. Some people do not get wisdom teeth (3rd molars) and their normal dentition is 28.

Usually one will develop 4 different wisdom teeth in their early to late teens. One will have 1 different wisdom tooth in each of the 4 sections of the mouth, basically 1 on each side including both the top and bottom of the mouth.

If you mean your wisdom teeth, only if they are causing problems with the other teeth. Many people do not have enough room for them to fit properly in the mouth.
