Wisdom Teeth [Jan. 6th, 2006|10:31 am]
Listen in, listen Ian!

Is it possible for wisdom teeth not to put in an appearance until one is in, say, one's early thirties? And why else might my extreme right lower tooth seem bigger, and slightly out of place?

Hell, it's biology - almost anything's possible. One set of teeth, onset of puberty in the twenties/thrities, six toes...

That's why they're called wisdom teeth--they don't come in until you're a grownup.

Oh, I think I see what you mean. Anyway, yes, it's possible.

Count your molars. If you've got three, congratulations, it's wisdom!

Are you in one's early thirties? Christ, we're all getting old aren't we. I can feel old age coming on. And as far as wisdom teeth are concerned, those bästards will do anything to cause inconvenience. Mine didn't start hurting till my mid 20s (which are now LONG PAST). Nice icon.

Early to mid, if I'm honest.

I thought I'd escaped the whole wisdom tooth thing. I don't want to be wise.

It could well be a wisdom tooth shunting your normal molars out of kilter. Grr, wisdom teeth are stupid! I had to have all mine whipped out in my early 20s when they decided to grow sideways into my jawbone. Marv!

I should try and find me a dentist really, shouldn't I? Oh dear.

Go to my dentists, they cost a fortune but they're really nice.

It's entirely possible - my lower wisdoms are still growing.

Mine aren't fully through yet and I'm in my early thirties. Apparently my Dad never got his at all.

You are about my age (I think). Two of mine started coming through two years ago, they are both still there.

As there are no longer any NHS dentists around here, the easy one would take 20 minutes and cost £50. The difficult one would require a hospital visit and would be free.

I can't be @rsed with either of them.

I had a wisdom tooth emerge and cause pain about a year and a half ago (so v late 20s).

Aged 38, mine have yet to appear. I suspect they never will.
