  • Can you tell me why you should keep your wisdom teeth?

  • It is cheaper than having surgery you don’t need, assuming the wisdom teeth don’t make

  • you need braces.

  • Why would keeping the wisdom teeth make me have braces?

  • About one in five people don’t have wisdom teeth at all. A large number of those who

  • do have them have a jaw too small for them.

  • Which is rather odd.

  • Were evolving smaller faces and jaws along with bigger brains. Unfortunately, the wisdom

  • teeth often don’t fit.

  • Hence the braces.

  • The braces are to fix the crowding. If all the teeth are tilting forward or shifting

  • as the wisdom teeth try to crowd in, it hurts dental hygiene.

  • And then you need the braces.

  • And that’s why it is better to have them removed before they mess up the rest of your

  • teeth.

  • I saw Reddit pictures of people with upside down and sideways wisdom teeth. But if there

  • is nothing wrong, why not keep them?

  • If there’s nothing wrong, keep them. Youll have extra molars in back for grinding and

  • chewing.

  • I’ve heard they are hard to floss.

  • Most people don’t floss enough anyway.

  • That’s not smart. Why are they called wisdom teeth, anyway?

  • They usually come in around age 18, what the Greeks called the age of Wisdom.

  • Not judging by the auto insurance rates and stupid Youtube videos a lot of kids that age

  • post. Why do dentists usually take them out?

  • About nine in ten people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth. Why not just take them

  • all out at the same time and be done with it?

  • Or save money over braces and the orthodontist.

  • But if there is nothing wrong with them, there’s no reason to keep them.

  • Then you just have another set of molars to get cavities in.
