Q.

Gettin more teeth at age 28

What is going on?
I have all my " normal teeth"  including my fully exposed wisdom teeth but now I have a 4th set of molers protruding from behind my wisdom teeth.
This is not normal I know but it does not seem to be effecting me negatively, meaning upsetting the other teeth.

Should I be worried?

With my previous dentist visit the dentist was amazed to the the right side new moler just starting to punch though the back gums and told me it will probibly never fully emerge. well it did and the left side is now making its way though the gums!
