Full impact extra tooth?? I Don't belive it!!?
Im almost 26 years old and I recently went to the dentist. I had not gone to the dentist for about 7 years now.

I had surgery before to remove an extra tooth but I don't remember if it was in the same place as where the new Xray shows the tooth is coming out. When removing a tooth.... Do they remove the whole thing or do they just cut part of it out ? Im praying its not an extra tooth because DELTA Care USA (Delta Dental of California) already Denied me of Coverage. :-(
