Wondering if you have wisdom teeth? And how will you understand when it’s the right time to extract them? There are some things you can pay attention to tell if you have wisdom teeth, but to really know them, you should consult a medical professional like Dr. Margaret L. Romeo. Try a couple of these at-home identification methods, and tell us about it if you find anything you’re curious about. We’ve been working with wisdom teeth for decades, and we’d be happy to help you if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed too.

The most obvious method to know if you have wisdom teeth is to look for a third molar in any of the locations where molars are located. However, because wisdom teeth can be impacted underneath the gums, you may not be able to see them. If you feel major pain in any of the spots where a third molar would be situated, this could be an indication that a wisdom tooth is pushing through. This feeling usually manifests as a throb.
