The literal translation of the words means โ€˜parents do not knowโ€™. This is one of the many Japanese words that could be easily misinterpreted. Adult teeth usually start to grow and develop at ages 5 โ€“ 6, and is completed by ages 12 โ€“ 13, while wisdom teeth start growing after age 20. Itโ€™s said that oyashirazu was popularized during a time when the life expectancy was on average 50 years old. By the time a person develops wisdom teeth, the parents may no longer be around, hence the term โ€˜parents do not knowโ€™.
