Impacted Tooth Removal

An impacted tooth is a tooth that is embedded in the bone and is blocked from coming into the mouth due to its incorrect position or lack of space available. An impacted tooth can be partially exposed through the gum or completely submerged and only visible on an X-Ray.

An impacted tooth can cause decay, pressure to neighbouring teeth, infection, cyst formations, and even orthodontic problems. It is best that you visit an Oral & Maxillofacial surgeon to have these removed and sutured up properly using dissolvable stitches.
