… 35% of the population is born without the wisdom teeth?

This process is part of our evolution.

Compared to our ancestors, they had jaws that were much larger than us, helping them tear flesh and chew hard foods like roots, leaves, etc. This type of diet required a greater masticatory force and this is why they had wisdom teeth, a third group of molars.

Today, the type of food we eat is softer and easier to chew, as a result of this change in diet, our jaws are smaller and we do not have the space needed for a third set of teeth, for Therefore, the wisdom teeth are doomed to disappear from our organism.
