    Some people never see their wisdom teeth because they’re deep down and/or impacted.

    I have all four of mine and never needed them pulled.

    The women in my family tend to have no wisdom teeth, genetically.  I had one and it was pulled when I was about 31.

    I don’t fit anywhere in the poll.  I had mine cut out before they ever had a chance to come through.  Two were impacted so they took them all out when I was about 14.  That was 30 years ago.

    Mine were all impacted. I never had any sign of them until I was about 20, and I could feel the top ones under my gums. They didn’t really move or anything until about a year ago (age 23), when I suddenly started getting horrible headaches & jaw pain. I had them all out & all the pain stopped 🙂 My dad had all of his wisdom teeth come in slowly, and they were all fine. My mom had no room for them so she had hers pulled. My brothers are currently coming in & he’s 19, so maybe he will be lucky & won’t need them pulled. DH had his out at 19, all were impacted and really pushing on his other teeth.

    I’m 21, and none of mine have surfaced at all.

    I have to go make an appointment with an orthodontist to see if they need to be removed at all, but I’m waiting until after the wedding.

    I had my wisdom teeth out a couple years ago, I think I was 21 or so? DH had his out a couple months ago at 24.

    I only had 3 and had them all pulled when I was 26 I think.

    @pinkgreenandyellow:  I had 5 wisdom teeth (yes, 5, one was an adult tooth that surfaced in the wrong place). They came in when I was about 26 and I had them surgically removed, not pulled. It was a bit disgusting but didn’t hurt really.

    I did not select anything, I had all four come in (two all the way, two half way) and had them removed when I was 21. I am 30 now

    I don’t have any wisdom teeth…and according to my dentist, I never did. He asked me when I went there for the first time a few years ago, “when did you have your wisdom teeth pulled?” I told him Never! After reviewing my x-rays and calling in pretty much everyone else that works there, he surmised that I have never had wisdom teeth.
