Lots of people who have a problem with their wisdom teeth search on Google backwards. They will search for “San Francisco wisdom teeth” as though San Francisco somehow has them! It doesn’t, but YOU do.
Wisdom teeth, as far as most people are concerned are nothing short of a nuisance. We don’t need them today, any more than we need our appendix, but almost everyone gets them. But why?
It is thought that our ancestors had larger jaws with more teeth which helped them to chew plant foliage, so they had a use for them. However, when agriculture began some 10,000 years ago, the human diet changed to soft foods which included carbohydrates and high energy foods, and we didn’t need them any more. However, they still grow in the majority of the population. They are thought to be named after the Latin dens sapientiae, dens meaning tooth or teeth (hence the word dentist) and sapientiae meaning understanding, reason, or wisdom. So now you know!
Today, Our Jaws Are Smaller
However, today we do not need or have as large jaws as our ancestors, and so when the wisdom teeth grow there is usually no space for them. What happens is that they try to find room to erupt and so they grow sideways, can push other teeth out of alignment, and cause all sorts of problems, which is why San Francisco wisdom teeth removal (which is what you SHOULD search for) becomes necessary.
In fact, if you don’t opt for San Francisco wisdom teeth removal you can be fairly certain you are going to have problems. A very minute percentage of people don’t have a problem with them, but most of us do. They have been causing problems for a long time. Aristotle said back in the third century BC: ” The last teeth to come in man are molars called ‘wisdom-teeth’, which come at the age of twenty years, in the case of both sexes. Cases have been known in women upwards of eighty years old where at the very close of life the wisdom-teeth have come up, causing great pain in their coming; and cases have been known of the like phenomenon in men too. This happens, when it does happen, in the case of people where the wisdom-teeth have not come up in early years.”
