Growing another toothaged sixty plus

It feels like I am growing another tooth right at the back of my mouth. I am over sixty now and not expecting that. Googling this gives a mine of information about teeth but a lot of it is beyond me with the technical terms and variations of them. I have had 3 extractions over the years . Before anyone says see a dentist, it is not causing any pain or bothering me yet. I
would just like your comments if any of you have experienced this sort of thing.

I realize that nobody is qualified (before I get told so) to give advice.

Go to dentist you need to know for definite - there are many causes, don't assume.

I will have to but reluctant to do so just yet as I am not keen on torturers that steal you blind.

See your dentist as soon as you can.

Wisdom teeth often don't appear until late in life - that is if they do at all. It is nothing to worr about, but it is worth seeing a dentist anyway. I go every 6 months anyway just for checks.

"Wisdom teeth often don't appear until late in life"

They usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25, and if you haven't got them by the age of 30 it is very unlikely they will appear at all. It is unusual for them to appear in later life, but occasionally it does happen. There is one case on record of a man getting a wisdom tooth at 92 years of age.

There is very little worse than tooth ache, go to the dentist and get it checked now before it gets much worse.

I'm not sure I can cope with Bumpkin becoming a Wise man.

Don't worry, the other 4 haven't worked:-)

Anyone know how much it costs to have a tooth extracted these days?

  lotvic 17:02 24 Feb 2017

Cymro. it seems to vary a lot, I found this list of prices via a (random) search click here costs about £100 for a straightforward extraction.
