Wisdom teeth start to erupt at about 18 years of age. Thus the term wisdom teeth.

the wisdom tooth is the last tooth to erupt which erupts any time around 18 to 24 years of age.

I hope its not because i hope i don't get it pulled out.

5 years for them to fully grow through! 5 years for them to fully grow through!

I had my molar pulled 10 - 15 years ago and my wisdom tooth did come down and fill in the space. It is slightly slanted but I have never had any problems with it. It is possible for a wisdom tooth to eventually erupt into the space but they will generally come in at a slant and create problems with the health of the gums. This slanting causes a large space that is very difficult to keep clean and we usually see advance bone loss happen in this are that can affect the existing 1st molor as well. In today's world the best alternative would be a dental implant to replace the extracted 2nd molar.

maybe some people are not sure of it maybe you bit your gum or something. Yesterday, my dental X-rays found a new wisdom tooth growing in my jaw. I am 53 years old. Is this a common occurence?

There isn't much of an answer to that. They can grow at any time in your life my sister is ten years old and she already has a wisdom tooth and my dad is 50 and he has had none. Hope this helps you !

If you mean wisdom teeth, then they are at the very back of your jaws. They come in during your middle to later teenage years.

Yes, they can be and should be removed. The only reason it's suggested to get them out when you are younger is because you are more likely to recover faster and there is less chance of caries. If you have cavity on a tooth, it should be treated, either by repairing the tooth, or in cases of semi-impacted wisdom teeth, the tooth should be extracted.

i once had a patient with full dentures and about 70 years young complain of tooth ache. it took some convincing by him for me to agree to x ray him. lo and behold - a wisdom was cracking. in short - yes

Wisdom teeth actually begin forming before the age of 10, and if they erupt it is between the age of 17 years to 21 years. Not everyone though gets wisdom teeth and some get more than one! A widom teeth is known as a 3rd molar, they are an extra teeth, not needed for your mouth. In some cases people remove their wisdom teeth.

Very possible, my bottom wisdom teeth started growing at age 9 but my top ones didn't start to grow in until I was about 13-14 years old.

You can, but it is not likely. Not many people even have have their wisdom teeth at that age. Most people have their wisdom teeth extracted when they are nearly done with highschool (16-19 years old). Your doctor may not want to remove your yet even if you do have them. I am 12 years old. I have my wisdom teeth, and I am getting them pulled out next month. It is possible to get your wisdom teeth that young i am living proof. =)

A wisdom tooth may become impacted due to lack of space in the dental arch and its eruption is therefore prevented by gum, bone, another tooth or all three. Lack of space occurs because our jaws have become smaller (through evolution), we do not loose teeth through decay as frequently as in the past, and our diet is such that our teeth do not wear down as much. This impaction may cause saliva, bacteria and food particles to collect around an impacted wisdom tooth, causing it, or the next tooth to decay. It is very difficult to remove such decay. Pain and infection will usually insue. Also a asymptomatic wisdom tooth may over time slowly impinge on a branch of the facial nerve potentially causing progressive facial paralisis.

The wisdom teeth are also called third molars. They are normally the last teeth in each arch (upper and lower) to erupt. Sometimes the third molars don't erupt (become impacted) because there is not enough space but we'll save that discussion for another question. The third molars are sometimes called wisdom teeth because they normally erupt around 18 years of age, when teens are supposed to be turning the corner to adulthood and "wisdom".

No, it is very much unlikely that a wisdome tooth extraction might cause a cross bite. Usually a cross bite is formed right after the adult teeth have erupted in the early teenage years.

Most teenage girls will have some growth toward the late teens & then be done.

Wisdom teeth don't 'grow back', you only get one set. The dentist can see teeth that have not yet erupted through the gums in an X-ray years before they are ready to come through. They know for sure if they are coming back through or not. If you may have had a different tooth pulled than what you realized, and the wisdom tooth is just now coming in. Also, if your wisdom tooth was actually removed, sometimes little pieces break off during the extraction. If this happens, it could work its way back through your gum months, or even years, after the tooth itself is removed. It can cause irritation until it comes all the way out. There is nothing holding it in place, so your body will go ahead and just push it through. Your dentist can help get the piece out if it is really bothering you.

Your son has an abscess( infection). You need to get him to a dentist as soon as possible. If the tooth can be saved, the dentist will perform a procedure called a pulpotomy and a crown will be placed on the tooth. You should save this tooth if at all possible. Your son needs this tooth until he is about 6 or 7 years old when it will be replaced by a permanent adult tooth. Besides needing it to chew and for appearances, this tooth holds a place open for the permanent tooth to come in. If this baby tooth is lost prematurely, that part of the dental arch will likely collapse and there will not be enough room for the permanent tooth. To correct this, you son will then require extensive (and expensive) orthodontic treatment. u need to take him u to the dentest my tooth was like that one time and i had to get my baby tooth taken out it hurts a little bit becace they usally give a shot bu u realy need to get that out.from Hannah

I have the same problem. I never got my wisdom teeth taken out. I am 23 years old now, and a few days ago i found a small hole, about the size of a pencil lead right behind my last moler, in between where my wisdom tooth should be, and where the molar is. Food gets stuck in it, its very sensitive to cold/hot. It almost feels as the pain would feel before having a root canal. I would also like to know possible things this could be. I looked up mouth cancer, and its not a sign or symptom of it.

Wisdom teeth appear when you are 17-20 years old but some people never get wisdom teeth 17-20 though I've just got mine and I am 13, my last two wisdom teeth are coming through at the back. I didn't notice I'd got them until I got a tooth ache and counted all my teeth incuding the ones coming through, I have 32

Growth hormones reach their peak in teen years, then decline. Bones have reached mature lengths by then. Normal growth is not possible after that.

no of course not Awkwardly I think I have wisdom teeth starting a 8 years. My dentist didnt even say I had wisdom teeth but I have three molars
