In brief: Four or more

The average person has four wisdom teeth, although it's possible to have more.
There are reports found in the literature up to 10 wisdom teeth. Regardless the number or whether you have obvious symptoms, it is important to diagnose existing or potential problems caused by your wisdom teeth.

In brief: Four

Most people have four wisdom teeth, usually the last tooth on each side of the upper and lower jaws, although some people may have an extra tooth or teeth adjacent or behind the wisdom teeth known as a supernumerary tooth or teeth.
