    Oh yes, the teen years are when the wisdom teeth usually come in. Mine came in when I was 17. They hurt something fierce! I still have all 4 of mine. Most people get theirs taken out. Good luck!!

    Oh lord! I have put some anbesol on it (a numbing thing used for babies when they are teething) and also have an icepack on my teeth. This seems to stop the pain. I shall see what they are like tomorrow and then make an appointment at the dentist

    I got them around your age as well Josh Finally got them taken out when I was about 29 after the aches and pains started getting quite frequent. I feel your pain, it's not nice :(

    I know exactly what anbusol (and orajel) is. I used it for Alysia back when she was teething. I rubbed some on her gums and the next thing I know, my whole mouth was numb! Seems I must have put my fingers in my mouth before I had a chance to wash them.

    Definately make the dentist appt. I hear it's best to get them taken out when your younger. I'm also told that wisdom teeth are connected to sinus troubles which explains why I have so many issues with sinus infections.

    Yup, it is very normal.

    I had 3 taken out, I still have one. I actually had 5 teeth taken out because my wisdom teeth were pushing against my bottom molars ( coming in sideways), and ended up breaking my molars. Not fun! Get it taken care of ASAP
