Wisdom teeth can take 5-10 years from appearance until the last tooth is completely grown. They generally occur between the age of 17 to 26 and can become stuck causing pain, gum infections and even swelling. You can visit a dentist to determine if there is a problem with your teeth or not.This is according to information from, http://your-doctor.com/patient_info/dental_info/dental_disorders/wisdomteeth.html.

If you went and got them x-rayed, you'd probably see that they will never come thru because they are coming in sideways and the other teeth are blocking them. Be glad you were born in the last 70 years. Before that you'd probably end up at the barbershop that had a guy in it who had big strong muscles and cotton stuck in his ears. Now, during the operation, if you do feel any pain at all tell them you need more medicine. There should not be any pain! I also had "gas" administered and that's the best. It gives you a euphoric feeling that you can handle anything! Gas failed me in later operations so maybe my tolerance levels changed. ANYWAY, go to the dentist! Your teeth get infected and the infection kills people. A local tennis pro died: infected tooth! I used to lie in my dorm room, sick of the infection. Get on with your life by taking care of this! There are other big obstacles and challenges speeding towards you at this very moment.
