Hi,
It seems like your third molars(Wisdom Teeth) are erupting. They usually erupt at 18-25 years of age. If the tooth has not erupted fully beyond 25 years of age you should consult a dentist and an X-ray should be taken to determine the actual position of the tooth. If it is Impacted it should be surgically removed.

hello claudia,
its probably wisdom tooth nothing to be worried with your milk intake. wisdom tooth will be of no problem if it erupts properly. its by this age wisdom tooth erupts and its upto you to decide whether to have it or not until it is problematic with your chewing. as you are willing to take it off by next sitting , you can go for it... take care

Hi, the normal age of eruption of wisdom teeth is 18-25 yrs. So it is quite obvious that your wisdom teeth are erupting. They take upto 6 months to erupt completely. So please get periodic check ups done. If they do not erupt completely, they may need to be extracted or otherwise they cause many problems.
