Q.

Extra tooth

Hi
I am 27 years old.
I have a baby tooth (top leaft hand side of my mouth) that has not yet fallen out.
Obviously the adult tooth has grown above it. sort of like embedded in my gums.
It does not bother me and it is not painful.
Should i get it removed?
Should i rather get the baby tooth removed and then the other tooth pulled down?
Is it neccessary to do anything about it?
