I don't have it anymore, but up until a few years ago, I had a baby molar.  I had it because there was never an adult tooth to push it out.  The dentist removed it because he was afraid it would cause problems in the future.  From what he told me, it is fairly common.  I hope this helps.

I have one. It's stuck. My bottom teeth are so squished that it can't come out. I'm supposed to get it pulled. I just got one pulled (a baby tooth) a few months ago and it hurt so bad I'm in no rush to get the other one out until it starts hurting me like the pulled one was. I should have had braces when I was younger, but my parents were too cheap.

It does lol. I have 3 in the back and they are the flat top teeth(I dont know what they are called! hah!) but in order for me to get braces they need to be pulled. And I just never heard of someone still having baby teeth lol

Me too! I have overcrowding and severe over bite and we was going to get braces for me, but then he said pulling out my teeth and that just threw the price way over! So we couldnt afford it.

yes i still have one on the bottom row. my dentist said it might fall out in a few years and if it does then i have to get an implant because there isn't a tooth growing under it.

I'm 20, and I grew up really poor and only went to the dentist once. We have tricare now, and I recently went and they said I have two! They need to be pulled because one of em is having an adult tooth grow behind it. Ughhh
