WISDOM TEETH IN AACHEN
The wisdom teeth are the eighth teeth of each half of the jaw. In the evolution of the human jaw, it became more and more smaller and finer. However, the size of the teeth has hardly changed at all – this means that most people have insufficient space in the mouth for the wisdom teeth. Usually the wisdom teeth do not break through at all or only incompletely. This lack of space causes many dental problems with the wisdom teeth.
