PUTTING THE “WISDOM” IN WISDOM TEETH
Wisdom teeth are rear molars that developed their name due to the fact that they are usually the last teeth to come through the gums. This usually occurs when people are in their late teens, twenties or even older.
These days wisdom teeth serve little purpose and are often “impacted” (wedged in) as there is insufficient space in our jaw to accommodate these last molar teeth. This is because as mankind has evolved, so have our eating habits.
