Wisdom teeth, rear molars that develop and come in during one’s adult life, are left over from an earlier stage of human development when people often no longer had functioning molars when they reached their twenties. These days, thanks to dental and medical science, we’re keeping our original set of molars for most of our extended lifespans, and the wisdom teeth (now left without space to come in) consequently cause more harm than good.
Left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can cause a staggering number of dental problems including crowding and displacement of healthy molars, severe constant pain, and serious infections in the jaw, gums, and bloodstream.
