4 years? Ohhh noooes! Mine have been growing on and off for the past year and they are growing at an angle ugghh!But i cant have them removed as they are on my bottom jaw nerve so if they were to be removed it might damage the nerve and i may not be able to feel my bottom lip (nice!) lol! Hope your teeth feel better soon! hugs to you :)

Glad to know I'm not the only one suffering with it :)).

That must be a bit of a pain having them growing at an angle :{. My sister was lucky enough to have hers taken out before they even started growing :o.

I hope you two feel better with yours soon too. Just imagine how painful it must be for babies when they're teething :{ oww.

is it growing straight?

i had my bottom ones taken out a few years ago but my top ones are fully grown but the right one is overgrawn and catches on my bottom tooth so that coming out soon to.

might be worth going to the dentist?

hope it stops hurting and finishes growing soon.

:o Lucky you :)). It's where it comes through the gum that it's most painful I find, and I can't stop playing with it with my tongue which makes it sore rolleyes. I might invest in some bonjela or something to ease it.


A teething ring? That's a bit bizarre :)) If it works let me know!

Ouch do feel sorry for those of you with wisdom tooth issues/pain.

I had my top 2 removed in my early 20's they were straight forward, then the bottom 2 behaved themselves until my last dental check up - I'd had some discomfort over Christmas with a swollen gum which I took to be a gum infection but the dentist took one look and said it was the wisdom tooth:{

I had it removed 2 weeks ago and was such a stress head before hand - the injections were worse then the removal - tooth was out in about 3 seconds flat - suprised the dentist!

I did have tooth ache after - more constant dull thumping ache rather than pain - managed cold soft foods the same day and was back to work the next day.

The tooth was decaying and he said if it didnt come out now I'd get infections, it was on a bit of a slant but not impacted.

We are hoping the last remaining one causes no problems but at least I know what to expect if it does need removing.

Hope you feel better soon and maybe can see your dentist?
