We were often told they give us more wisdom and intelligence, but now, we realize it was told just to calm us down. But wisdom teeth, the toughest molars, are vestigial organs. Here's more on them.
Existence Why do wisdom teeth exist?
Wisdom teeth, the third set of molars, are present at the back of your mouth. They generally emerge between the ages of 17 to 21 and may take years to completely develop. Wisdom teeth, if infected, can also damage the neighboring teeth or result in issues like bleeding or swollen gums, jaw pain, headaches, difficulty in eating, and discomfort.
Decision Is taking out wisdom teeth a good idea?
