Toothy wisdom

March 1, 2014 by quirkyowl

Between the ages of 17 and 25, the last teeth to develop and appear in the mouth are wisdom teeth or third molars.

Some people have wisdom teeth while approximately 30% of people don’t. Does this imply that some people are wiser than others?

Research suggests that this is due to a random genetic mutation that came about thousands of years ago, which suppressed the formation of wisdom teeth among modern day humans.
