It's not what usually happens, but it is no big deal. It happens occasionally. You'll just probably have to have two sets removed instead of one. I also have two sets of Wisdom teeth! They are called surnumerary teeth.

An adult human has 32 teeth, not 16. 16 on top and 16 on the bottom. 4 of these teeth, 2 on top and 2 on bottom are the wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth are located at the very back of each side of the mouth, behind the last molars

It is normal to have some swelling and redness on your cheeks after having your wisdom teeth removed. If this swelling and redness lasts for more than 2 days you should contact your dentist.

They are called "eights" ~ extra wisdom teeth, which is uncommon. I had 2 on my upper set which I had removed. Consider yourself "special"=) I also have two more wisdom teeth in upper part

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.

A full set of teeth is 32. That's 16 top and 16 bottom. Remove 2 for the wisdom teeth and you will have 14 on the bottom jaw.
