One of the things that we don’t need in San Francisco is snow removal. Because we don’t have any of that white stuff. But everyone in Boston and everyone in San Francisco typically shares the fact that they need wisdom teeth removal at some point in their life. So if you’re looking smugly at those Bostonians in the winter, just remember that nearly all of us humans need wisdom teeth extraction when it comes to our “wisdom” teeth, and that doesn’t matter where you live.
Why are they called “wisdom” teeth? Because they typically don’t arrive until you are in your mid-teens or later, and by that time you are presumed to have gained some wisdom.
However, there is really nothing “wise” about wisdom teeth today because we simply don’t need them. They are a relic of an earlier age when our ancestors needed them to chew on tough plants and meats, but since we no longer need to do that, we don’t need wisdom teeth.
Here’s where it goes wrong. In common with your appendix, which you also have no need of, they still grow. The problem is that because we don’t need them, our jaws have become slightly smaller. That means that there is not enough room for them in most cases, so they try to force their way through the gums and jawbone and cause all sorts of difficulties. This is why you need San Francisco wisdom teeth removal before they do considerable damage.
In a handful of people, wisdom teeth may cause no problems, but they are in a very small minority. Most of us need San Francisco wisdom teeth removal between mid-teens and around 25 or so.
