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.
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.
