Wisdom Teeth

Removing wisdom teeth has become a commonplace surgery. But what if we were unknowingly removing something more?

After having his wisdom teeth removed, a man finds he is no longer able to recall anything he learned in his lengthy post-secondary education.

  • What happens when the man goes back to the dentist?
