They told me mine was a potential food trap, I assume because cleaning bagck there is hard. Otherwise they said the only other reason is pain growing in or they grow in weird
I didn't have any pain growing in. Not that I remember anyway. They didn't grow in weird, although they didn't entirely uncover the way other teeth do. The gum comes almost to the top of a couple of them. Maybe that's normal though.For me, the cleaning part is a combination of making sure you get back there with a brush, plus being over crowded so you can't get floss between the teeth.If you've never used a water flosser like a Water Pic, I highly recommend it. I wish I had started using one years ago. It would have made things much easier. It works way better than flossing, even with crowded teeth. You don't need Water Pic brand though. Just get the cheap one since they are all pretty much the same.
It sounds like we are in the exact same boat. mine barely show through. I will definitely check that out
thanks for the MHO!!!

Funny, mine grew in during my mid to late teens.
Yeah I got my first at 16-17. Last only a year back. I was always a few years ahead with puberty and the rest so I figure I was somewhat early. As were you! Maybe we're just really wise. Or, our teeth figured when we were 18 or so, we weren't getting any wiser anyway, so why wait? ;)
When I was 18-22ish in the Army they were pulling them from folks left and right. Also same age.
Thats not true, when I was in the Army at 19-21 they were yanking them left and right. I somehow kept mine.
average age to get them is between 17 and 25 with some getting them as late as 35... whilst the British stereotype is that we all have bad teeth, very few have wisdom teeth removed so young so maybe the fact that its actually americans that have more issues with dental health that made you see a different result.
