Hello there. If the adenoids are causing problems like breathing discomfort, its better to get them removed. Adenoids are just a lymphatic tissue. We can live perfectly fine without adenoids. They have very less or even no significant use in us. So I suggest better to get it removed and then proceed with the dental procedures. Regards
