Wisdom teeth are apparently a vestigial organ , one that is not very useful now but played an important role in the body in the past. They often try to grow into a jaw that is too small for them. As the last teeth in the jawline, they often grow in sideways, pushing against teeth that are already in place. Because wisdom teeth are difficult to clean, there may be a build-up of bacteria, plaque, and food debris around them -- something that can cause gum disease or decay in the wisdom tooth and other molars.
