I Got My 33rd Tooth!

I Got My 33rd Tooth!

It was after late night party for me and my husband in last month. I was wiping make up and suddenly felt something is lodged between my left cheek and left side of upper jaw. Tongue has its own reflex to clear any lodged food in that region but it cannot find any. I thought my gums have swollen for some reason and dint mind it. Brushed as usual and went to bed.

Next morning was a busy monday and I had to rush to my work. Whole day there was a uneasyness in the gum. After returning home I was straight in front of the mirror. Tried my best to examine what happened…I found a small protrusion in the region and that gave me a relief…as I thought it is going to disappear in few days.

I already have 4 wisdom teeth set into my permanent dentition. I have a well oral health ..well that according to me though I have gone through tooth filling and one uprooting! 

After a week I found there is a small white, hard, tooth like formation there and that made me think …”WOW” …how can one have an extra tooth? Being a human I must have space for 32 teeth only. So I must be alien, Dracula, superhuman or subhuman QED. Started pretending to not care about that as I am (or I was?) pretty sure about my human ancestry.

My husband was scheduled  to Gabon and I was busy helping him packing and collecting documents for his job responsibility and totally ignored the new entity inside my mouth.

Now last week I saw it in a shape of a canine hanging over last three teeth and that made me visit my dentist at last.

When he asked, “What happened dear?” I announced: “I got my 33rd tooth”. He was not convinced at first and reluctantly said “Let me see”. I was in the chair with a big yawning position and he was ready with his instruments. After examining he said “Unbelievable…its rare but you have indeed the 33rd tooth. It is a paramolar.”

Then he explained what it is and how he is going to uproot it in near future. I came home with my medical certificate to prove my speciality. Till then I am smiling with an extra shine…its indeeda big wide smile.

Now on serious note…I googled paramolar andfound limited siting on it. If anyone is interested in my case for your research you can freely write to me.

Another interesting fact is – this is my 33rd post.

      Welcome to the group. Thank you for sharing the post. Yes I can understand the look of disbelief people give when they find you have something extra.For me my agony continuing with the appearance of 34th teeth this year. So pray to toothfairy that for you it stops at 33 only.

    I am 60 years and 4 months. my 33rd tooth started growing 2 weeks ago. I have had the same thoughts like you before reading your article. It is highly probable that we are alien to the earth and have incarnated as humans for a purpose.

    Wow just came back from x-ray thing with my photo and can’t believe that i have 33 teeth. It is in pretty weird spot O.o it is between 2 molar teeth and it is a bit lower O.o feels like it is growing inside my mouth haha. But ye I guess we are special 🙂 I don’t feel any pain so I don’t know if my dentist is going to remove it O.o I just feel it with my tongue 🙂

      First of all So sorry for such a late reply. I hope you got treated. They may remove it in future if not now as food may lodge in that pocket which is difficult to clean …leading to dental problems. Wish you all the luck.

    I have been having serious pain and symptoms of a 12 months old growing milk teeth for 10 days now. I thought it was due to the fact that I missed my last dental appointment (which was suppose to be 6 weeks ago). 5 days ago the pain become unbearable. I started running temperature and diarrhea, lost appetite for my favorite meal and so on. So I called my primary doctor. He recommended over the counter for few days till I can get a dental appointment or go to the ER if symptoms persist. 2 days I have my husband looked at it (because the pain is still there). I was surprised when he told me am growing my 33rd tooth. I have it recorded so I see the tooth. None of my friends or family believed me when I told them. They all said it’s not possible. Even my doctor won’t belief. Am glad I found this post.

    I am now 58 with 33 teeth. It was revealed by an x ray at age 38 that the swellen behind the mola was a tooth. Currently I still have more white teeth and am glad am not the only one in the system. I do not care about the myth. The blessing is that my teeth are very strong and white. None has been extracted by a dentist.
    Info. on 33 teeth would be appreciated.

    whats the 33rd tooth named as?

    • Monsoon Mitra

      November 5, 2016 at 23:14

      It gets its name depending on its position. In my case it was para-molar as I got it clung beside my normal molar.

    Today I found out I have an extra tooth. My dentist called it ‘the 9th wisdom tooth’. That was funny. I also have 8 cervical vertebrae, an extra one! I wonder what else could I have “extra”, lol.

    Hey, i have got the similar situation here. I am 23 and this same thing is happening to me. I have a liitle protrusion from the left side of my palate and at first i too thought its just some food lodged. But after 2 days it started hurting and my tongue went uneasy. I checked it and although there is no white hint of teeth protruding, i can definitely feel a tooth in there under the thin covering. Just wanted to know when you can get it removed? Can they remove it now or do i have to wait till it comes out? Also, thank you. It was nice to know that it happens and its not something to worry about..☺
