Humans have evolved to have smaller jaws, leaving almost no space for the third molar to erupt. Frequently it is absent completely or fails to erupt. However in a few cases it manages to erupt and becomes quite the center of attention. An impacted third molar can become a foci of infection causing food lodgment, caries, intense pain and limited, painful mouth opening. While thorough cleaning, curettage or even antibiotics can cause temporary relief, the permanent solution is to get rid of the offending agent, i.e., the third molar. The third molar is vestigial in us human, meaning, it serves no function. Therefore dental myths like extraction will affect chewing is exactly that, a myth. The third molar more often than not has no function in chewing. Removal of the third molar will cause a permanent redressal of this issue.
