Why do we have wisdom teeth?
Typically, wisdom teeth appear between the ages of 18 and 25. Anthropologically speaking, our ancestors may have had additional molars to account for their diet and chewing hard foods. Smaller face and jaw sizes and the lack of hunter-gatherer lifestyles have eliminated need for this extra set of teeth.
Reasons for wisdom teeth removal
For some people, wisdom teeth come in naturally without causing problems. Others never even get wisdom teeth. The unfortunate majority get their wisdom teeth but have problems with them. 85 percent of people have their wisdom teeth removed at some point in their lives. For many patients, their jaws are too small or the teeth are too big leading to dental problems. The most common reasons to remove wisdom teeth include the following:
- Impacted or the potential to become impacted wisdom teeth
- The wisdom teeth have caused damage to the surrounding teeth
- The potential for future pain and dental issues if the teeth are not removed
