What are impacted teeth?

Impacted teeth are teeth that fail to erupt. Impacted teeth stay within the jaw bone. The most common impacted teeth (other than wisdom teeth) are the maxillary canines. Often orthodontist refer pateints with impacted teeth to the periodontist for exposure.

What needs to be done about impacted teeth?

If teeth other than third molars are impacted, they can often be surgically exposed. This allows the orthodontist to put an orthodonitic appliance to move the tooth to the ideal position.
