Wisdom Teeth Have Not Yet Grown At The Age Of 26 Years?
Good evening, my age is now mid 26, but not one wisdom tooth has grown. Is it normal or even dangerous? Because I have read an article that says that wisdom teeth don’t grow at the age above 23/25 it’s dangerous (if I’m not mistaken , I forgot where to read) If it’s dangerous, what should I do to make my wisdom teeth grow fast? Thank you …
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Wisdom teeth are another name for third molars, or third molars in medical terms, and are named so because they grow most recently compared to other teeth. Some sources say a different time span will be when the wisdom teeth normally grow, but the average mention is between 18-30 years.
So in your case, you are actually still within the normal range for wisdom teeth to grow. But even if it doesn't grow, it's not true that it's a sign of danger. Many people who get old teeth do not grow at all and it is not a problem. Among the most well-known theories is that this happened because humans underwent evolution. As time goes by, the food consumed by humans gets softer and humans don't need help from molar 3 to pulverize food. This causes the human jaw to get smaller and finally there is no room for molar 3 to grow. But again this is no problem, the third molar that does not grow will only stay in its original location without causing any symptoms or illness.
What to watch out for is when the tooth grows but it tilts or presses on another tooth, causing annoying pain. If this happens, the treatment can be in the form of a tooth extraction operation by the dentist. But because for now you don't experience any symptoms, you don't need to worry and there is nothing special you need to do. So, hopefully answering your question.
