Why don’t my wisdom teeth fit my mouth?
There are theories as to why wisdom teeth don’t fit many people’s mouths. Some experts think genetics may play a part – for example, you may have inherited one parent’s small jaw, and another parent’s large teeth. another theory suggests the size of our mouths has decreased over the centuries, because our diet has changed and our jaws don’t need to be as large and strong as they were in prehistoric times.
Your wisdom teeth only need to be removed if they cause problems. For example: Wisdom teeth can be very difficult to clean and are prone to tooth decay, gum disease and recurring infections. Cysts and tumors can develop in tissues around impacted wisdom teeth. If your wisdom teeth are unable to erupt, they may cause pressure and damage or crowd the neighboring teeth.
