Wisdom teeth were great, at one point. Our ancestors once required these sets of teeth to chew on raw meat, roots, nuts, and many other hard-to-chew foods. Today, our eating habits have changed considerably.
We now eat food that’s cooked, meaning that the food we’re chewing on is much tender than if it were raw. Because of this, our jaws grew smaller. Unfortunately, the wisdom tooth isn’t so wise, which still believes itself to be still necessary, causing havoc in many people’s mouths.
