Why are wisdom teeth called wisdom teeth?
Because by the time you get them, you are old enough and smart enough to grab pliers and rip them out yourself instead going to the dentist and giving them a ridiculous amount to do it when you have all of the tools to do so in your shed.

Ask your dentist about the positioning of your wisdom teeth. He or she may take an X-ray periodically to evaluate for the presence and alignment of your wisdom teeth.… Your dentist may also decide to send you to an oral surgeon for further evaluation. Your dentist or oral surgeon may recommend that your wisdom teeth be extracted even before problems develop. This is done to avoid a more painful or more complicated extraction that might have to be done a few years later. Removal is easier in young people, when the wisdom teeth roots are not yet fully developed and the bone is less dense. In older people, recovery and healing time tend to be longer.

They are generally thought to be called wisdom teeth because they appear so late - much later than the other teeth, at an age where people are presumably "wiser" than as a chi…ld, when the other teeth erupt.
You get wisdom teeth gradually as you get older. Normally this is between the ages of 17-21 but can happen any time bettween your late teens to your early 20s

Wisdom teeth are called wisdom teeth because you get them usually around 18 when you are a legal adult.
Wisdom teeth also can be impacted -- they are enclosed within the soft tissue and/or the jawbone or only partially break through or erupt through the gum. Partial eruption… of the wisdom teeth allows an opening for bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause an infection, which results in pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, and general illness. Partially erupted teeth are also more prone to tooth decay and gum disease because their hard-to-reach location and awkward positioning makes brushing and flossing difficult. visit Wisdomteethsydney.com.au

They are an extra set of molars in the back of our mouth that we don't need anymore. Some people's mouths are big enough so they grow in normally, but some people have smaller… mouths and have to get them extracted. Hope that helped.
keep the socket clean, don't smoke and keep salt water that is warm in your mouth every hour for 2 minutes . if it feels worse after 2 or 3 days go back to the dentist as you …may have dry socket which is very painful! whatever you do don't let the pain relief run out, keep taking round the clock.
Because we we're created with wisdom teeth Humans developed wisdom teeth early on as a way to grind up the tough meat, vegetables, nuts, and other foods we often ate.
