i almost had 8, i had 7. three on top and 4 on the bottom. my dentist didnt seem too suprised; he said that of all the teeth in the mouth, wisdom teeth are the most common to have more or less of each one. i did get all 7 out last week, and it was miserable. so good luck. do NOT smoke ANYTHING.

Wisdom Teeth are the third pair of molars

The normal adult dentition is 32 teeth, including the third molars (wisdom teeth). Some people do not develop third molars, so normal dentition for them would be 28 teeth.

Yes they are. Molars are the big teeth.

Wisdom teeth is the common name for 3rd molars. We are biologically programmed to have three molars in each quadrant. However, Wisdom teeth or 3rd molars are one of the most commonly congenitally missing teeth, the others being lateral incisors and 2nd premolars. Therefore, some of us may have less than 4 wisdom teeth or not at all. If we all had all the wisdom teeth that we are supposed to have then we should have 4 in total (one for each quadrant)

A wisdom tooth may be growing beneath the gum and can appear as a lump. They are usually similar in shape to your back molars and about the same size.
