    JADA.

    Would you say that dental care today to retain all your teeth make the 3rd molars obselete? From an evolutionary point of view, would you say we were meant to lose our 2nd molars by a certain age so our 3rd molars move in? My molars are just about coming in at the moment, should i get them pulled out?
    Anyway, when I was a kid, i would make this argument so that I didnt have to floss my back teeth. EW :rolleyes: haha
