What is Tooth Impaction?

The term tooth impaction describes a tooth that that has either failed to erupt when expected, or a tooth that has been blocked from erupting because it doesn’t have adequate space or is in the wrong position or direction. There are four types of impaction including: horizontal, vertical, angular and partial. Impaction commonly happens with wisdom teeth and can be discovered by taking an x-ray. Some impacted teeth can be retained and monitored throughout the individual’s lifetime however, some many create problems and require removal. Symptoms of tooth impaction can include gum swelling and bleeding, bad breath, difficulty and pain opening your jaw, pain while eating, headaches and swollen neck and shoulder glands.
