In many ways, wisdom teeth are a right of passage. Most people get wisdom teeth between the ages of 17 and 21. Wisdom teeth are located behind the morals in the back of the mouth. You have both a bottom and top set of wisdom teeth. Each set of wisdom teeth may come in at a different time, at the same time, or may not appear at all. The appearance of your wisdom teeth feels different for everyone. Some people feel no pain at all because their wisdom teeth don’t affect the rest of teeth and grow in normally. For other people, the wisdom teeth can come in crooked, cause pain as they grow in, or take up space in their mouth causing their existing teeth to shift.
