At age 30 I went to the dentist for the first time in 20years (signed up for a company medical plan)
I asked about wisdom teeth, he looked and said "you have them all, didn't you notice?"
Nope so I have no idea when they arrived.

I got my wisdom teeth sometime in the middle of high school. They grew in fine, and I have had no trouble with them yet.(Knock on wood)

I do have a friend that had partly embedded wisdom teeth which the entist insisted on removing. They had to shatter them and out the shards.:eek: I remember he wasn't able to eat solid food for a couple days. He was fine in the end though. I think his case was extreme though, so you guys don't have to worry too much.
