    All of mine are came through and I still have them. I didn’t think it was weird until I saw a new dentist and she made a comment (after seeing my x-rays) “Wow…you have a party going on and EVERYONE is in attendance!” LOL Apparently not many adults still have them? Mine came in during my senior year in high school and I never had a problem with them (I am 35 now).

    I’m 21, nearly 22 and 2 of my wisdom teeth have come through, but aren’t out completely yet. They’ve taken so long to come through, it’s been 2 years since I noticed the 1st one! Undecided I haven’t had too much pain with them, just the odd bad  headache/migraine and tenderness. What’s REALLY horrible is that they have made me dribble a bit, and I have way too much saliva all of the time. Super embarrassing! Embarassed A lot of my friends have had theirs pulled out or surgically removed because of bad pain or because they were impacted. Hopefully all of mine will come through all right! Dentists here are super expensive; a few grand to get them all removed. 

    Fiance is 26, nearly 27 and has no wisdom teeth! He is so lucky haha Tongue Out

    @pinkgreenandyellow:  I had 5 wisdom teeth, actually. Maybe this means I’m extra wise!

    They were impacted and I got them out before they came in or could cause any problems over one winter break while I was in college.

    My wisdom teeth were all impacted so they were all pulled when I was 24. Strangely enough, the dentist also pulled a baby tooth at that time that I didn’t even know I still had!

    All four of mine came in at 24.  Had them removed using just gas, and the guy actually used pliers and stood on the arms of my chair to pull them out.  That was a Friday morning.  Saturday night i was out at the club .. no swelling nothing … no dry pockets and no pain.  As long as they don’t have to cut shouldn’t  be too bad.
