In brief: Supernumerary tooth

once a tooth is removed, it does not grow back.
Most likely an extra tooth developed close to the removed tooth called supernumerary tooth. The most common places are wisdom teeth area, premolar, teeth in front of molars, and between the top front central incisors.

In brief: Nope

Wisdom teeth do not reform once extracted.
Neither do any other teeth, BTW.

In brief: Not likely

Once in a great while people will have extra teeth in their maxilla and mandible.
These are called supernumerary teeth. Once a tooth is removed, it is gone for good! If you do happen to have an extra tooth it may appear sometimes years later. With today's radiographs it is unlikely that it would be overlooked but there is a possibility. Best of luck!

In brief: No :)

Wisdom tooth extractions are not fun so thankfully once they are removed you don't have to worry about them.

In brief: "New" wisdom tooth

Very rare, but some people have more than the usual number of wisdom teeth.
If you do have extra wisdom tooth, you need additional extractions after the first set has been removed.
