Do you need wisdom teeth?

To answer this question is really not easy, but still. Do we really need wisdom teeth? The growth of these teeth in an average person begins at the age of 18-25, when the body is already fully formed. And besides, few people know that the appearance of such teeth as wisdom teeth was influenced by nothing more than our evolution. In ancient times, when our ancestors did not have such benefits of civilization as we are now, they really needed these teeth for the normal use of food, because at that time the food was much coarser, and they appeared for normal chewing of wisdom teeth.

All the pros and cons

At the moment, many people have formed the opinion that wisdom teeth are not only not needed, but must be removed, due to the fact that they create only extra problems for us. After all, when their growth begins, many manifest intolerable pain, create terrible discomfort, and in most cases this all leads to the removal of these teeth.One can only envy the lucky ones, in whom this process is painless and inconspicuous. And besides, cleaning these teeth delivers great trouble because of their hard-to-place accommodation in the oral cavity.

So nevertheless, is it necessary to remove wisdom teeth? Let's look at this situation from the other side, at the moment you are young, you have no problems with your teeth, you can safely chew food. But have you ever thought about the future, about old age, when you can lose chewing teeth and remain completely without teeth. To insert new ones, you will need supports for bridges, and then how are you planning to insert prostheses? That's when these useless teeth seem useful to you at the moment.

Do not make hasty conclusions. Before you make a decision, contact your dentist, he will advise you, advise how to do better in this situation, file them or slightly incise the gum, he will do all this painlessly and not always wisdom teeth will answer him.
