Snaggletooth / Fang / Extra Tooth!!!

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: ExtraTooth  (7 years ago)
This snaggletooth / fang / extra tooth developed on the right side, upper gums area and it's definitely time to get this sucker out of my mouth :( It does not hurt, nor does it bleed or cause swelling. Thus I need your help.

1) Would this be a simple tooth extraction done by any reputable dentist?

2) Would this be a complex surgical procedure done by an oral surgeon?

Thanks for any advice given.

It would be an easy matter for any dentist to remove. Make sure it is truly an extra tooth, and not your permanent canine that erupted high because of crowding. Because we ALWAYS save canines, even if we have to extract premolars to fit them in the arch.

You have lower anterior crowding also. You need a complete orthodontic evaluation before extracting any teeth.

even though extraction may sound a time saving option, that apparent extra tooth is ur right upper canine tooth which has erupted out of place. the removal of which could lead to a flattened out lip contour on the right. sacrificing the premolar to get the canine space is a better option. consult an orthodontist before further traetment
