Summary about Impacted Teeth in English

Impacted teeth occur when teeth cannot grow properly on their own; either something is obstructing their movement – such as the baby teeth not falling out – or there is insufficient space for all of the teeth. This causes the teeth to become stuck, sometimes barely protruding from the gum line and sometimes completely hidden beneath the gums.

Some people have multiple impacted teeth, whereas others only have one. This is determined by the causes of impacted teeth as well as how the teeth develop. On the other hand, some people have impacted baby teeth but healthy adult teeth, or vice versa. It is entirely dependent on your particular set of teeth.

While an impacted tooth may not cause pain or discomfort, and you may not even be aware that it exists, it is critical to keep an eye on it and, in some cases, treat it.

Symptoms of Impacted Teeth

In some cases, you might not have any symptoms at all. In other cases, impacted teeth may cause:

  • swollen, red, or bleeding gums
  • pain while you open your mouth, or when you chew and bite
  • a bad taste in the mouth
  • bad breath
  • difficulty in opening your mouth

Symptoms may appear and disappear over weeks or months.


Causes of Impacted Teeth

Common Causes of Impacted teeth:

  • The tooth has twisted or grown in at a wrong angle that it can no longer push through.
  • The space for that tooth to grow in has been overcrowded with other teeth in the mouth.
  • The jaw is too small to accommodate more teeth, and some will grow while others will stop.
  • The tooth is too large to grow in the space available.
  • Genetic factors affecting your teeth or jaw
  • Accidental damage to a baby tooth affects the erupting adult tooth beneath it, causing the adult tooth to become impacted.

Treatment

  • Extractions with an Oral Surgery: The most effective treatment may be to simply extract the impacted tooth, depending on the severity or placement of the impacted tooth, as well as the positioning of the rest of the teeth.
  • Treating Impacted teeth using Braces: Under the supervision of an experienced orthodontist, metal or ceramic braces may be used to treat an impacted tooth.

Preventive Measures of Impacted Teeth

You can't stop an impaction from happening, but you can:

  • Keep a regular six-month appointment with a dentist to monitor the emergence and growth of your teeth. 
  • Get regularly updated X-rays of your teeth so that you may know if you have impacted teeth before the symptoms develop.
