Why We Have Wisdom Teeth, Why?!
My upper right one was so corroded that last Sunday it gave me quite a toothache. The toothache was gone with the sleep to the dawn of last Monday, but I know it's a sign the tooth was beyond salvage. It had been corroding for the last 5 to 6 to... how many year? I don't exactly recall. Anyway, I finally bought myself to have it removed and now I am still in quite a pain.
Why? Why we are born with genetic code to grow the four stupid teeth?! You know what? One patient before me and the one after (quite a cute girl :P) were all to remove at least one of such stupid teeth. I don't know if I should cry or laugh.
Medical scientists should work to prevent future generations having such stupid teeth grown. I ensure you medical expenditure of a society will drop dramatically because of this great work.

I recommend ripping out all of your teeth with pliers and wearing dentures.

I have all my wisdom teeth, and I've never had any problem with them. The teeth themselves aren't really the problem, it's that the average jaw is a bit too small for them. Big enough jaw, no issues with the teeth. Go back far enough in pre-humans, and the jaws are significantly bigger.
Back then, they needed the teeth. Lots of plant matter, no tools to cut up what meat they got, and extra molars were handy. Plus, they were a backup for when you lost a tooth.
These days, not so much. We have these Great Big Brains, and we've been processing our food for millenia to make it easier to consume, grinding up grains to make flour for example. So we didn't really need big muscular jaws anymore, and as the jaw shrank it got crowded in there.
None of which may apply to you, since you said your teeth were "corroded." Unless you're talking about bone erosion from pressure - and that does happen - it sounds like it was just poor dental hygiene.

the real question is why is your jaw too small for your wisdom teeth to fit?
because youve been malnutritioned for the past few generations

cuz genetic code is altered by chewing bread differently than berries, not a bio-developmental response to a change in nutrition..
oh and skull and dental deformities impair neuro, muscular, circulatory, and respiratory pathways in the face, head, and neck, impeding the brains performance, and causing all sorts of psychological symptoms.

That's a thought. If he ripped out all his teeth with pliers, the improvement to his neuro, muscular, circulatory, and respiratory pathways in the face, head, and neck might improve his brain performance and relieve his psychological symptoms.
He might stop believing in Weston Price's psuedoscience, though.

I should add that I am not* a practising dentist.

I made teeth to munch other teeth from one da vinci's formula of something similar to plastic derived from cabbage. In case you need them.

If your wisdom teeth didn't give you problems until you were 40, clearly it wasn't a space issue, it was cavities, which can happen to any tooth. Though obviously the further back they are, the harder it is to get the plaque off.
I've managed to avoid cavities in my wisdom teeth, though I don't see how. All eight regular molars have fillings. You'd think the wisdom teeth would be worse, but they aren't.

I had cavities on my wisdom tooth, I asked the dentist to just remove it but she didn't agree with me. She removed the cavities, cleaned the tooth and fill it with dental filling and pack and shape it to made sure it doesn't affect my normal bite pattern.

im suffering too.
but look closer.
i see em everywhere
especially at the dentists.
with braces, or bite appliances.
you already agreed that the issue was a smaller jaw. however you basically claimed that chewing bread differently than berries has influenced evolution over a time period of less than ten thousand yrs; when the degeneration logically stems from malnutritioned parents.
did you even read the chapter i linked?
a degeneration is not evolution.
"The blending of different racial stocks produces typical characteristics of either or both ancestral patterns. When, however, marked divergences appear without mixing of racial stocks, the result is not due to heredity, but occurs in spite of heredity. In the previous chapters, I have shown that in the modernized groups of various primitive racial stocks, ccrtain individuals developed marked changes in facial and dental arch form from the racial pattern. We are interested to know the nature of the forces responsible for this distortion of the ancestral pattern. In a study of 1,276 skulls of the ancient civilizations of Peru, I did not find one with a typical divergence from normal such as we find in modern whites or in children of primitive racial stocks after the parents have adopted the foods of our modern civilization. It is important that we study this phase in further detail."..
