  • Yep. I was 19. The other name for the "wisdom teeth" is the 18 year molars - most people get them by age 18. Most people just don't have the room in their mouths for these big teeth - leading to medical problems when they come in sideways, pressing on the roots of the other teeth - so the wisdom teeth are removed.

  • I had mine out early 20's, but they should have come out sooner. They gave me trouble for years. In fact on my wedding day they were hurting- or the gums around them were, anyway.
