In brief: Genetic mismatch

Teeth used to fit in jaws.
When genetic crossing among different peoples occurred, size mismatch occurred. Make sure your wisdom teeth are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon.

In brief: Genetic Remnant

Why are we born with an appendix when it serves no purpose and needs to be surgically removed in an emergency? Some structures still form when we develop due to our genetic makeup, but these structures are not necessarily useful or needed to survive.
