If out of occlusion they should b extracted they r likely to b supernumerary teeth
Hi. Some people have extra teeth in mouth known as Supernumerary teeth. If they are not causing any problem with the occlusion (closing of teeth or mouth) and the esthetics (looks) then let them be there. If they are causing any problem then get them removed. These teeth can be linked to some Syndromes also. Some people have retained deciduous (milk) teeth also.
How do you know that. Did a qualified dentist told you that or its just your own observation. However if it's true, it's just a anomaly, nothing to worry about.
