What is an impacted tooth?
These are teeth that cannot be driven into the mouth due to pathological or various reasons and remain in the bone. Eating preferences that have changed with the discovery of fire by human beings have become softer and easier to chew than foods that are hard and difficult to chew. For this reason, the growth and expansion of the jaw bones were restricted and the teeth could not drive into the mouth and remained embedded in the bone.
Impacted teeth cause destruction to the roots of neighboring teeth, caries, cyst formation and crowding problems in the teeth.
Treatment of Impacted Teeth
It is the surgical removal of the tooth under local anesthesia.
