Is it possible to not have wisdom teeth form? (10 points) Please help!?
I am VERY slow with my teeth and I should still have a baby tooth in but they pulled it out (the adult tooth still hasn't grown in and i'm 15). I just started getting my second set of adult molars (not wisdom) and my wisdom teeth haven't formed yet. Is it possible that I'll never get them?
Additional Details
I've had x-rays and there's no sign of wisdeom teeth :)

Katie C
in fact, when i had to get them removed, the dentist told me i only had three
im a mutant- just kidding

loving yahoo answers
ya its possible... and many people don't have wisdom tooth..its vestigial now-a-days...

interesting to know--> there are people who don't have a single tooth erupted.. but that's something abnormal...

Helen DDS
The dentist would see "tooth buds" even if the tooth hadn't formed, so it sounds like you're in the clear and won't ever have any wisdom teeth to take out

azn dude
yea its poss9ible http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081205183015AAtOIkY&r=w

Yes; some people never get wisdom teeth. Some people only get one. I have two, but my Dad had four. It just varies from person to person.

Lauren Elise
yep. x-rays can tell you if you have them.
it's a sign of evolution if you don't have any.

I don't have any (:

youll get them butt they might not have to be removed they only get removed because you dont have enough room in your mouth. like some people dont get them removed

yes, it is possible
when i was gonna get braces i had x-rays done and the dentist said i wasnt going to get any wisdom teeth and it was normal not to.

go here it'll explain a little about it

Duncan Henderson
It's possible.
I only have two (no lowers). I have a friend who has a third upper central.

Some people don't have them at all

Not everyone gets wisdom teeth. If you don't, it's not a big deal. Most people get the pulled anyways.

Derek B
it is possible but i kind of doubt it unless you have it in the family. but its possible.. hope that helps

you'll get them later

it is probably possible but your still young, I know plenty of people that didn't get them until they were much older than you

Clare B
I don't have wisdom teeth and I'm 19. I'm probably never gonna get them. :D

Baby Bang
I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF A CASE LIKE THAT BUT I AM SURE THAT IT IS POSSIBLE and you are not supposed to get your wisdom teeth until you are 17,18, or 19

Depends on your family history, on both sides of your family

The MisUnderstood
Im 14 and im not having any wisdom teeth. they took an xray when they put my braces on. They said i had no roots showing so i dont have them YAY!

yea thats possible (:

Probably not. You will get your wisdom teeth don't worry but you probably wont get them until you are 16 or 17

Its very common the wisdom teeth dont form. Consider yourself lucky. Mine have only just formed, nd im almost 18, nd it hurts!

just give it some more time... you'll probably get them soon

Miranda Cosgrove
It's rare, but possible. I have a lot of friends your age and half of them still have half of their baby teeth. your just a late bloomer. It's fine. Good Luck!

Im 28 and still never got wisdom teeth.

my mom never had a wisdom tooth and i think i only got one on the top of my mouth. so yeah you might not get a wisdom tooth or teeth just depends on family and if your lucky enough not to get one

J. T. Calmes
I have only had 2 wisdom teeth instead of 4 and the other two never came, I am now 27.

It is definitely possible that you will never have them grow in. My Dad didn't have any, I don't have any and my sister only had 2. So, you may just luck out!

personally, i dont know for sure if you will never get them, but im in my 20s and mine have never came in..... but never say never... just before thanksgiving, my friend had to have hers pulled, and she's in her 20's as well.

yes it is possible. some people never have their wisdom teeth develop. But dont think that yet, my wisdom teeth didnt fully develop until I was close to 17.

you might not but there still is a chance i am 15 too but maybe you are just really late but if there is no sign then there probably is like a 83% chance that you will not get them :)) lucky you!!

Anthony D
Yes, starting in 1980, dentist began to notice that children born after that year, were not getting the wisdom teeth. Not all kids, but many, and as the years passed, that number has increased. Its part of "evolution" if you will. We don't need those teeth, and they have been troublesome for man for a long time. The body, more importantly, the genes have recognized this and have slowly altered their "plan" and removed them from future generations. You don't have them, be thankful about it.
