  • Usually wisdom teeth come in late teens to early to mid twenties. They can hurt bad trying to come through. Some are impacted and some not. Just see for a consult a dentist on it.

  • ^^ mine came out when i was 9, then at age 10.. they never bothered me, never hurt, never did anything bad to my other teeth.. until i was 15... then i had to get the first side yanked out.. at age 18 the other 2

  • Im in my late 20's and I have never had wisdom teeth and they say I never will so I can't help you there. You are in the same area as I am and I love the Gasconade office in St. Roberts. Try them out...
