Tooth impaction: Is the tooth stuck?
November 28, 2014
A tooth is impacted if it fails to erupt due to some obstruction. The obstruction may be neighbouring teeth, abnormal mass of calcified tissue, an extra tooth, or thick impenetrable gum. There should be a period of observation to confirm if the tooth is indeed impacted. Sometimes, apparently impacted teeth manage to twist and turn and free themselves, saving you from the cost and pain of surgery.
