I thought I might have the answer to this but my wisdom teeth have been pulled ... sorry ;-}
In our ancestral environment teeth would wear out. It was an advantage to have some functional molars that erupted later in life because with no teeth your life expectancy was short.
No idea really, but I've noted that the human body continues to grow throughout life. Hips get wider, feet get bigger. I'm guessing it's because the mouth and jaw get larger and it's just part of the overall process.

Do you have wisdom teeth?I am in the process and it hurts. My dentist has told me to get them removed and I don't want to go through all that. Is there a way out, or I will have to get them removed?

Why do they call them wisdom teeth, and where did the name come from?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...
