what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or as we dental folks call them, "third molars", are the final set of teeth you'll get. Generally, they make their grand entrance between the ages of 17 and 25. Although it's a milestone of sorts in terms of adulthood, these late bloomers don't necessarily serve a specific function in our mouths today. Their main job was to help our ancestors chew tough, raw foods. Now, with our refined diets and smaller jaws, they often just run out of room.
