I have three wisdom teeth that show up on x-rays. 2 on top, one on bottom. yesterday i noticed that one of the upper ones had actually started to come in. I had no pain at all! isn't this odd?

I had 6 wisdom teeth, two on top, 4 on the bottom, I was one of those people where my wisdom teeth became impacted and where coming up directly under my 12 year old molars, I was lucky and got mine removed before I felt them.

I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed, not because they were coming in wrong or were hurting. I got them removed because I had braces when I was younger and had they come in they would have inevitably caused my teeth to shift from their nice straight alignment, which would be a waste of all that money and time, not to mention I love my smile the way it is.
Even if a person did not have braces wisdom teeth can shift the alignment of a persons teeth, I would ask my dentist about whether the wisdom teeth should come out.
