Yes. It is possible. I was late getting my teeth as a child and had similar experiences with overcrowding of teeth and several lots of braces which did not work as a teenager after having two premolars removed from my upper jaw in 1977. Recently having severe toothache I found it to be my last wisdom tooth is coming. I am 46 years old and the two teeth pulled out 33 years ago are growing back! Three weeks ago I had two back teeth removed, one upper one lower and next month on the other side of my mouth one top and lower back teeth are coming out. This is to let the new teeth through. Apparently, I also have a smaller jaw which helped the overcrowding. I had my first wisdom tooth when I was 19. The second when I was 34 years old. The third one when I was 42 and the last one is coming through now. Teething late is also a sign of hyperdontia or a third set of teeth.

It is possible to have extra teeth. I have never heard of someone who has a complete extra set. It is common to be missing one or two teeth in the adult teeth. Most commonly 2nd premolars or bicuspids or third molars.
