Okay. I'm posting this in The Gray Area because I don't have proof of this - my X-rays from my teenage days are long long gone.

I'm wondering if anyone has ever heard of this happening? It freaked out my dentist.

So, as a teen I was told by my dentist I'd had since infancy that I had 4 wisdom teeth that would probably need to be removed in my late teens / early twenties. They were on my x-rays - I saw them, and I absolutely trusted my dentist. These were definitely my x-rays!

I moved away from my hometown and, a few years later (I didn't have regular dental care for a while) I go to a new dentist and he takes extensive x-rays. So I ask about my wisdom teeth, thinking it would be time to take them out. He said, what wisdom teeth?

My wisdom teeth had disappeared!! All four of them!

I've never had to have them removed, obviously, because they were already gone.

Ok. So was it possible my dentist screwed up and put the wrong x-rays up? Well, he had just done them and developed them during the same visit, and we compared them to other x-rays on file that had the same teeth - mine. It was a long time ago, so again, I have no proof, and its possible my memory messed up, but really, it has been a mystery for me.

So, ATS - your guesses? Aliens helped me out with a painless wisdom tooth removal during an unremembered abduction?? (I don't think so)
Weird biology?

I'd love to hear if anyone has heard of this, or your creative answers to the mystery...

I was born without wisdom teeth, which is great they say, I imagine it's a genetic mutation from all the generations we spent pulling them, as to why the doctor would say you had them, and then you didn't, perhaps he was just assuming, or made a mistake of some kind.

I suspect this is more evidence of the Mandela effect, or too much laughing gas. That is kind of freaky...

You may want to file a claim with the tooth-fairy?

Tooth is stranger than fiction.

Ok very strange case here.

Maybe your dentist messed up and removed them or the x-ray was not yours?

Obviously not Aliens or some beings just a strange case you might not get the chance to find out the truth... Interesting thou.

Obviously, you (and anyone knowing of this thing called "wisdom teeth") are from another universe.

We, here, have never heard of this thing... teeth of wisdom? You are vegetative until these teeth grow? Or what? I searched the internet and nothing about them anywhere!



And of course, I am prevaricating ... or at least I hope so as I refuse to check and see if "wisdom teeth" exist or not, now!

But strange set of circumstances, anyway, and if they did vanish... theeeeennnnn .... ?

Could be Mandela Effect.

Or, alien abduction.

It's supposed to mean you are evolutionarily advanced!


Maybe I evolved?

(lol!)

I don't know what happened. It shall most likely forever remain a mystery...

Hey yeah...What does the Tooth Fairy do with all those teeth anyway? Pretty creepy. (If anyone reads Terry Pratchett, you will have quite an image of this...) I don't think there is an inter dimensional court system...yet...

The only rational possibilities are 1) wrong x-ray (though that would have been quite a trick because he developed them in the office right after he took them), 2) they were weirdly re-absorbed (not likely because I would have lost other teeth?)

The look on my second dentists face was priceless...he thought I was joking at first.

Perhaps as you grew your jaw expanded and the 'wisdom teeth became other molars.

Yeah, i know your type. I could post reference after reference on the existence of wisdom teeth, and would you look at them? Nooooooo. Couldn't be bothered. *sigh* Then you'd come back with "wise"-cracking one-liners about how I'm deranged or some sort of psy-op specialist...


All joking aside (ahem) it really did happen. Shocked me quite a bit. The only other thing I can think of is that I had cancer at a young age, and though I hadn't been diagnosed yet, I would have had it then - something weird happening with my body? I was anemic and a bit nutritionally challenged - so??? I guess that's the third possibility. But no one has ever heard of that either...

*sigh*

Yep, I know. If the meme fits...

Not complaining. If the aliens wanted my wisdom teeth and could painlessly extract them, more power to them!

I wonder what THEY would use them for?? Oooh! Do I have a clone somewhere???

Nah. My best guess is jewelry...

Excellent rational thought! But they would have seen that in my mouth. And I have a smaller jaw, so it wouldn't have fit...

I have the normal number of teeth!

Anyway, I was just thinking folks would like this bit of real-life weird. I wish I knew the answer!

I just had a crazy thought.

Is it possible for the body to absorb underdeveloped teeth, almost like a calcium absorption type thing ?

I'm no orthodontic genius by any definition, so take it for what it's worth.... just thought I'd toss that out there.




If not, then...





aliens.

Well now...larger molars are a very good source for DNA...so if those sneaky aliens were planning on cloning you...a good place to start the process.
THAT...or they're part of some intergalactic dental school.

All things considered, i'd typically chalk it up to erroneous memory. Human memory tends to not be as good as we want to think. You likely catch this from time to time. Perhaps you are watching a movie you haven't seen in years, and its nothing like you remember it. Or a song whose words aren't even close to what you remember. This happens to me, and is most prevalent in memories that are from prior to 5 or so (around my parents divorce). Before that I have lots of memories but they have errors in them.

I spend quite a bit of time exercising my memory, and have recounted a large portion of what I am able to recall to various people. Often, its my mom (who would have been present often as i was a young child). She helps correct some of the errors for me, so my memories can be more correct. I don't know why its important to me, but it is.

I wondered that too, but my current dentist nixed it, saying it wasn't possible.

Yep.

Its called tooth resorption, and it is not really all that common.....but yes, it does happen.

en.wikipedia.org...

The thing is, 4 teeth, all reabsorbed without a trace, is somewhat improbable. Unless AB's ability to reabsorb mineralized tissue is more prodigious than the average bear.
