My son has to have his second molar removed on lower left of jaw I too had this done is it just a coincidence
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
I would doubt that it is just a coincidence
there is a strong genetic component to tooth/jaw structure.

My son and myself have almost identical structure
