Most people in their mid-20s either already have their wisdom teeth in San Diego or won’t have them at all. Not everybody grows wisdom teeth, and not everyone who does has them removed. They are vestigial parts of the body, but they can cause problems for your oral health. Watch this video and find out why you don’t use your wisdom teeth.
Your third molars start growing right around your early teen years and will typically erupt by the middle of your 20s. The problem with these molars, or wisdom teeth, is that there’s often not enough room in the mouth for them. This causes them to become impacted or lead to infections, which are both painful and bad for your health. Humans don’t need these extra molars anymore because modern, cooked food is simply easier to chew. If you’re not sure if you need yours removed, have your dentist take a look.
