Does everyone have wisdom teeth?

Most people will develop all four wisdom teeth. Some people will have none at all, others only one or two, while some people have extra teeth that grow behind their wisdom teeth. The emergence of wisdom teeth tends to be hereditary, so if your parents or sibling have an unusual number of wisdom teeth, you are likely to have the same.
