My age is 21(M) and I have an extra tooth in the front upper side(mesiodens).it usually doesn't cause any problem or any kind of disturbance.but it doesn't look good while smiling..what should I do now?should I just extract it and get an implant?

  • For aesthetic purposes you have to get it pulled out but as it is an extra tooth there is no need to go for an implant. Rather if you want to go for implant then why to get it pulled out. Normal treatment plan is to extract the mesiodens and then go for space closure either by ortho treatment for my cosmetic dentistry. for more info on mesiodens you can read this article from this link.... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-causes-and-treatment-of-supernumerary-teeth-740.aspx
