Your wisdom teeth are your third molars and are the last teeth to grow. Sometimes, but not often, they come through perfectly straight and produce no gum issues, but for most of us that is not the case.
The fact is that our forbears needed their wisdom teeth for chewing hard plants and raw meat and so on, but today we don’t need them: they are rather like the appendix: we don’t need that either, but we all get one. However, the difference is that the vast majority of people have no trouble with their appendix, but the vast majority of people do have trouble with their wisdom teeth. They are called wisdom teeth because they don’t grow until we are in our teens, by which time we are supposed to have acquired some wisdom.
The wise thing to do if wisdom teeth are causing problems, is get wisdom teeth removal here in San Francisco. They cause trouble because we don’t usually have enough room for them to grow because our jawbones are smaller than our ancestors, and so they can grow sideways, partially erupt, push other teeth out of the way when they try to force their way through, or even stay trapped beneath the jawbone. Everybody’s situation is different.
When wisdom teeth only partially erupt there is a gap around the teeth in which bacteria will start to grow. This then leads to an infection, swelling of the gums, and pain and illness. It is then even possible for cysts or tumors to form which in turn can destroy healthy teeth and part of the jawbone itself.
