Consult: I would advise you to be examined by an orthodontist before you start taking out teeth. Extra teeth or misaligned teeth are two possibilities in your case. When your teeth are crooked, overlapped, or out of alignment, it does make it difficult to properly clean your teeth which can lead to cavities and gum disease. For long term health and better esthetics, get a consult.

See your dentist: The supernumerary tooth might cause esthetic and functional problems, especially if it is situated in the upper jaw. Earlier intervention is recommended in the form of surgical or orthodontic treatment and combination in order to minimize unwanted side effects. See your dentist for proper diagnosis and treatment options.
