Extra Teeth

Usually we take out extra teeth because they are a trap for food, and are hard to keep clean.  This will give the other teeth a better chance in your mouth and prevent periodontal disease.

There are other considerations like the size of your jaws and shape of the teeth that would need to be considered, because I have seen some orthodontically treated with braces to line up nicely in the mouth because they had room for the teeth and could keep them clean.
