10. An Absence of Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are basically body parts we no longer need. They may have once been important, but nowadays they’re kind of just a pain. According to medical experts, when a wisdom tooth tries to break through the gums, it usually runs out of space.
As a result, it becomes impacted, so an oral surgeon must intervene to solve the problem and rip that “wise” tooth out. While not everyone will have to go through this simple medical intervention, it’s estimated that 5 million people need extractions each year. Some may even choose to have their third molars removed before they become a problem.
However, there are some people who won’t have to worry about their wisdom teeth. Why? Well, they simply don’t have them. It seems that about 35% of the global population lacks third molars altogether, making it a rare body feature. Now that makes me jealous.
