Wisdom teeth aren't at all very useful as far as teeth go. They are literary a pain to have removed, and I've also never heard of the tooth fairy paying any more for wisdom teeth either. They certainly aren't the smartest teeth that are hanging around in your mouth, so why are they called wisdom teeth.
sort by best latest
Phyllis, X-rays showed that my lower wisdom teeth never developed. but I still have my two uppers. Does this mean I'm not as wise as I could have been?
It may mean MizBejabbers that you are only 50% as smart as people out there with all 4 wisdom teeth. Of coarse I'm only joking MizBejabbers, because you are one of the nicest and smartest hubbers out there on the Hub Pages!
haha MizB - my lower ones never came in either. Maybe we still contain some wisdom that is yet to surprise us.
Now that kind of reasoning makes a lot of sense.
