Impacted teeth can be dis-impacted with orthodontic braces, provided there is space available for them to move. Before the teeth are dis-impacted, one must assess whether it is worthwhile keeping the teeth. Are the teeth badly decayed? Are they inaccessible and difficult to keep clean? Is the mouth so small that the braces to be used to dis-impact the teeth will be uncomfortable? Will the wisdom teeth be useful once they are re-aligned? If they are worthwhile keeping, then having them straightened with orthodontic braces will save you the cost and pain of wisdom tooth surgery.
