Q.

Toddler has extra tooth

My 3 year old has an extra tooth. On the top next to the middle teeth, on the one side there is one tooth, while on the other are two, one being an odd shape. Should we do anything or wait for them to fall out and for the " adult"  teeth to come through

see your dentist for advice. The extra tooth may need to be removed at an early stage.
