Cause you are born with all the teeth you will ever have. The baby teeth are over adult teeth buds that come in later on.

Wisdom teeth usually come out cause nature made it so you have some new choppers (presumably this came about so adult prehistoric people at the end of their lives would need to have a replacement, due to loss and decay. Today, most people keep all their adult teeth, so we have wisdom teeth removed.

I don't know why you got a downvoat since this is true... other than the presumption, which can't be right nor wrong due to the nature of presumptions.

On that note, have you ever seen an X-ray of a baby's skull? SO MANY TEETH!!!

Because we don't grow teeth. EVER.(except in the womb)

When you're born, all your teeth are there already, stuck in your head. Teeth example

So there's no mechanism for growing teeth. EVER

Which is one reason why living longer becomes an issue.

I hate that picture so much, it's so alien looking, but it's the best way to get the point across.

I would probably agree with this. There ARE documented cases where someones teeth are kicked out and they grow a third set.

I don't believe this is accurate.

There are cases of hyperdontia where there are extra teeth that are slightly impacted. But they were as present as all the other teeth, just forced down because of lack of room.

I cannot imagine how much it would hurt, if they could like, shoot some stem cells in your jaw to grow new teeth.

I'm not talking about the shots, I am talking about the pain of the new teeth developing.

Probably the best they could do would be to separately grow a tooth, transplant nerve tissue into the tooth, then try and implant the tooth.
