Impacted wisdom teeth can cause permanent damage to nearby teeth, gums, and bone and can sometimes lead to the formation of cysts or tumors that can destroy sections of the jaw. Therefore, dentists recommend people with impacted wisdom teeth have them surgically removed. It’s not just wisdom teeth that sometimes become impacted and need to be removed. Other teeth, such as the cuspids and the bicuspids can become impacted and can cause the same types of problems described with impacted wisdom teeth. Treatment are provided as below:
- Extraction (primary tooth, anterior tooth, posterior tooth, and wisdom tooth).
- Surgical removal (partial impacted tooth, or full impacted tooth).
