Impacted or stuck teeth occur when something blocks them coming down along their journey.

Wisdom teeth are among some of the most commonly impacted teeth, followed by the canine or fang teeth. Left stuck, they can cause catastrophic problems, especially if they bump into and destroy the roots of the front teeth.

Although there is a genetic link, impacted teeth can also occur when where is not enough space to fit all of the teeth in the mouth.

Treatment may involve creating space and aligning the teeth with braces. At times we may need to have the impacted tooth uncovered to be able to bring it into the correct position.
