Can wisdom teeth grow back?

I had all four wisdom teeth cut out 20 years ago.  Now one area is bothering me again; same symptoms as when they were impacted all those years ago.  I have heard the CAN grow back but just thought that was a myth.  Is it truly possible?

No, they will not grow back. You do need to see a dentist, however, to determine why you are having those symptoms.
