Impacted Teeth

What causes impacted teeth?
Impacted teeth do not have sufficient space to erupt or they erupt in the wrong direction (ectopic eruption). Ectopic eruption most commonly occurs with the upper canine teeth. It is not known why this happens. If this condition is diagnosed before 10 years of age, treatment can be very simple. If it is left too late and all deciduous (baby) teeth are lost, treatment is usually quite complex.

Why should impacted teeth be fixed?
Impacted teeth can cause significant damage to adjacent teeth and cause the dentition to function incorrectly.

They can also leave unwanted gaps that can be unattractive

What treatment is used?
Once the tooth has been uncovered by an oral surgeon, it can be brought into the correct position with braces.
