hello & welcome
ma'am removal of tooth is not a solution of your problem at all.
you have to visit to your dentist for a permanent cure.
if there will any sharp edges teeth than selective grinding of teeth may be done.
some occlusion problem may be there & reason may be tongue thrusting, collapsed arch etc. for that you have to opt for orthodontic treatment.
till than start up with multivitamin capsules & topical anesthetics.

Hello bharati,
For tongue ulcers it was not appropriate to remove the adjacent teeth. no. 6 and no.7 teeth are molars which form occlusion with opposing molars and help in chewing,you cannot loose these teeth. as for now for no.5 n 8th tooth go for selective grinding of sharp cuspal edges that prevent tongue trauma.
For tongue ulcers you can apply dentogel,an antiseptic,anesthetic oral ointment which gives relief along with a course of multivitamin 2 times a day for 7 days.
i hope that helps,take care
