hmm, lingual side looks pretty flat, and ridges on both sides. Depending on if there are serrations present either Paronychodon (no serrations), but shape is a bit off; cf. Zapsalis (serrations only distal); or 2nd premaxillary tooth of a Dromaeosaur - Acheroraptor (serrations on both carinae). Let's see what @Troodon thinks ;)

Looks like its a Dromaeosaur, just can’t tell what species @Troodon.

JoeS summerized it quite well.  Bit of an odd tooth and the photos are not the best but based on not seeing serrations on the distal side looks like "cf paronychodon "  Might change if you can get better and closer photo.  

Do you have a locality (state & county) where this was found looks like JRF

 

This taxon is most likely dubious and these teeth are probably the premaxillary of some theropod.  But thats what is currently published and described.
