Interesting Teeth Facts

Hope everyone had a GREAT THANKSGIVING!! I ate too much turkey & pie and watched football. Except for the Longhorns losing, it was a great Thanksgiving. Now, time to start thinking about Christmas.

Here is something interesting that I just read about teeth here:

Our brains squeeze our teeth

A genetic mutation in our recent ancestors caused their descendants to have roomy skulls that accommodated larger brains. This may seem like pure success—brilliance, or its antecedent anyway. But the gene that made way for a larger brain did so by diverting bone away from our jaws, which caused them to become thinner and smaller. With smaller jaws, we could not eat tough food as easily as our thicker-jawed ancestors, but we could think our way out of that problem with the use of fire and stone tools. Yet because our teeth are roughly the same size as they have long been, our shrinking jaws don’t leave enough room for them in our mouths. Our wisdom teeth need to be pulled because our brains are too big.
