I'm pretty sure that's physically impossible. However, it is possible to have more than four wisdom teeth. Paramolars occasionally occur, and they can grow in behind removed wisdom teeth.

But the teeth don't "grow back", per se.

Any takers?

So, I'm bumping this mostly because I didn't want to start a new thread when I knew such a good one already existed, but I got the bad news this morning...

They're ALL impacted .

But, he told me that they will put me under for it, so...win. I'm a chicken when it comes to anything involving the dentist, so this was good news.

Anyways, now all I have to do is go in for a consultation and set The Date. Finding out that I had all four of them really helped explain a lot about my teeth as well, the bottom row is pretty jammed in together, and it never occurred to me that it was the wisdom teeth doing it. The dentist said once they're pulled, there are ways to fix this problem, so I'm happy to hear that .

I'm always impressed by anyone wanting to get all 4 removed at once. By "impressed" I mean "are you out of your freaking mind????!!!!!" Get'em done on a "as needs" basis, then you got one side free to chew your food with!

I had 3, got one done 20 years ago when it started causing problems, then had the 2nd done about 5 years ago. The third is just sitting there... And the valium the oral surgeon gave me before the first extraction was way cool... Though maybe that smilie is just a tad too active, in this context...

i'm so glad i got them all done at once. though i can understand the mentality of getting them done as needed. i just liked being able to only go through it once, so i was only on a liquid diet for a few days instead of a couple days one time, then another couple days a few years later, etc. i think three of my teeth were impacted (i remember two for sure were, i can't remember the third one. the fourth one i just did because why not).

the best example i can think of is my foot surgeries. i only really needed to get one foot done; my doctor didn't think the other was as much of a priority but totally understood my wanting to do both. it's a good thing i did, as while i was out on leave recuperating, i found out they were closing our department. i didn't even work at the next place long enough to take medical leave, and it probably would've been denied as a preexisting condition.

Had all four of mine out about... 25 years ago. They weren't impacted, but I guess at the time it was a good idea to get them all done at once. Of course I was knocked out and had no problems. Just make sure you have a waterpik or something like that to keep the holes clear of food & debris. Don't want that stuff in your gums & causing trouble

I had all 4 removed 7 years ago and they were all impacted. I got put under as well. The pain wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.

I still have mine. Like bono_212 my bottom row teeth are kind of smashed together. But they dont bother me so I wouldnt get them removed unless I really had to. I need to go get a deep cleaning and probably a filling or two here in the immediate future. No insurance and I had a bad experience with the last deep cleaning years ago (so much pain) so I've been putting it off. Meh dentists.

Awwww I had bad experiences with some dentists in the past with cleanings. When I moved I lucked out though and found a great dentist. Finding someone that you feel comfortable with makes a world of difference.

As for wisdom teeth my thought was just go in there and remove all 4 at once. The bottom two were impacted and partially erupted. Most pain I had was just when the medicine wore off after the surgery was over. Once I took a pain pill I was good to go. My oral surgeon got a big surprise when he saw I had no swelling or bruising lol.

Ah yeah, I forgot you yanks have issues with healthcare costs. Dental care here isn't usually covered by Medicare but I paid to go private and it cost me a couple of hundred I think each time, but I did have my extractions done under a local anaesthetic in the chair. The second tooth I was in and out of the surgery in 10 minutes, one yank and it was gone. No stitches or anything!!
