What Are the Wisdom Teeth?
The wisdom teeth are actually the third set of molars, and they get their name from the fact that they usually start to come in around the late teens or early twenties when someone is a bit “wiser.” They were essential for our cavemen ancestors whose diet mostly consisted of tough plants and meats, but as cooking methods have advanced, food has become much more edible and easier to chew, so the human jaw has shrunk over time. This is why most people simply don’t have enough room for their wisdom teeth and need to have them removed. We recommend doing so as early as possible to avoid any symptoms or pain.
