Tooth in Throat
My daughter, 17 years of age, has what appears to be a tooth growin in her throat on the right side of her mouth.  It's fair to say what looks like a toot is growing in the middle of her throat.  I have never seen such a thing, and don't know exactly what this toothlike substance may be.

Any ideas/suggestions?

I have never heard of a single case report where a tooth is growing in the "throat."

I suggest you promptly take your daughter to a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for radiographic and clinical examination.
