The Little Tooth that Could

Alright, so the past few days, my tooth has started to bother me. It’s my wisdom tooth… my one and only wisdom tooth.

I definitely have a question about this. I feel like someone must be playing a joke on me.

Growing up, I never had wisdom teeth. Ever. Even in the X-rays.

You know how some people have evolved past things like wisdom teeth, because we don’t need them for survival anymore? Well, that was me.

I felt that I had been gifted no wisdom teeth because of my extreme dislike of pain.

Well, around 2 years ago – When I was 25, one tiny wisdom tooth started to appear. I couldn’t believe it! The dentist was shocked too.

(On a side note, this is the same time when my feet got a 1/2 size bigger after being the same size for ~12 years!)

Why in the world would I suddenly start growing more teeth at an age way past when most people have wisdom teeth removed?

At the time, the dentist said not to worry about it. It was a tiny little nub of a tooth that had just appeared out of nowhere. It’s actually just one little point – like an upside down cone. That’s it and nothing more.

Well anyway, recently, the damn tooth has grown longer than my normal teeth. I’m starting to feel it touching my bottom gums when my mouth is closed.

How in the world is my tiny one wisdom tooth turning into a lone fang? I mean, really!

With all that said, I’m considering getting the devil removed in the next year or so.

Has anyone else had teeth grow in during their mid-20’s? Is it possible that I’m actually 18 and someone’s been lying to me? :-) I was just a very gifted child…
