Just thought I’d show you this small tooth. It is a fully formed supernumerary tooth that are a not uncommon occurrence in the adult dentition.
This one is a distomolar example and formed behind the wisdom tooth, perhaps as result of the original tooth germ for the wisdom tooth splitting in two.Despite its diminutive stature it has all the features of a normal tooth and managed to last well into middle age. It finally became so mobile it was at risk of accidental ingestion so was removed. It was not a challenge to remove it!
