Tagged: fitness, health, wellness
Wisdom teeth typically start to emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. However, in some cases, they may not emerge until later in life or may not emerge at all.
In some cases, developmental delays or abnormalities can cause a delay in the emergence of wisdom teeth.
Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during pregnancy, can cause changes in the gums that can affect the emergence of wisdom teeth.
The timing of wisdom tooth growth can be influenced by genetics. If your parents or other family members had late-emerging wisdom teeth, it’s possible that you may experience the same.
If your other teeth are too close together, it can make it difficult for wisdom teeth to emerge. This can result in delayed or impacted wisdom teeth.
