  • Have you heard that your wisdom teeth could grow back? Fortunately, this isn’t true. However, there are some people who are born with one or more extra wisdom teeth. This is a rare occurrence, usually appearing in only 1-2% of the population.
  • Some people are born without a tooth in their jawbone—which can usually lead to a variety of problems. But, with wisdom teeth you may be better off if you are missing one or more. In fact, about 25% of the population is completely missing at least one wisdom tooth.
  • Not every wisdom tooth will need to be removed, although most will. In fact, nearly 85% of all wisdom teeth will eventually need to be removed.
