I have been to 3-4 dentists recently (in USA) (for a case other than general cleaning) and all they are interested in doing is to take an x-ray and refer me to someone else who repeats the process. T...
Sometimes didn't come and it rots before coming out.
Best t o get it before it rots...
Wisdom teeth are kinda unique from person to person. Some people they come in just fine over a matter of a few weeks sometime in their teens (or later). Some people just never get them. Others they come in sideways. And for some like you, they seem to take forever to come in, and maybe never will fully emerge.
Give it a few more weeks. Teeth do grow in slowly and wisdom teeth are good big ones. If you really think that its taking too long go back and see your dentist in a couple of weeks.
Sometimes they don't. You may have to have them removed by an oral surgeon.
I had the same problem until I invested in a water pik-works wonders! You can buy one at any Wallgreens or CVS and it shouldn't be more than 30 bucks. I'm sorry I don't know how long they take to come out fully-I am having mine removed before then.
weeks maybe months
it takes time just like regular teeth=try not to worry and it will be in before you know it=if the dentist said its OK,that's great
she would have known as she learned this at dental school
Approximately 3 months.
I'm almost 37 and I have 2 wisdom teeth that have been coming in for almost 6 years now.
I am 34 yrs old and I haven't seen my wisdom teeth yet.My sister is 21 and hers grew in sideways...wierd!
some dentist don't care others you have to tell them that it is bothering you.
if they say it isn't impacted I guess they would know. I'm over 30 and I still have 2 wisdom teeth that have't emerged
Did your dentist take xrays? Looking at the xrays would have given her a pretty good indicator if there was anything to be concerned about. If it's really bothersome, you should mention it to your dentist and see what she suggests. Otherwise, if you prefer to play the waiting game, it could take several weeks for that tooth to fully erupt - if it ever does.
