Chances are that you will feel some discomfort, but there are occasions when the pain is more intense, in any case, it is better to visit the dentist. When wisdom teeth grow in properly, they can help us chew better.

Their birth

There are 3 ways that wisdom teeth fit: vertical, angular and horizontal. In many cases it is better to remove a tooth that is retained, because if this procedure is omitted, complications may arise such as: severe pain, swelling, gum disease, cysts, cavities, misplacement of other teeth, among other problems. For this reason, prevention is very important; if you visit your dentist regularly (twice a year), he or she can supervise the growth and its appearance. Nowadays, thanks to X-rays, it is possible to see if your tooth is retained or incorrectly positioned and this will avoid many future problems.

The diet of our primate ancestors included more fibrous plants, so having 4 spare molars was very useful to them. For us who have smaller jaws and an omnivorous diet, they usually only give us discomfort.
