Impacted Tooth

Alternate Names : Unerupted Tooth, Partially Erupted Tooth

Impacted Tooth | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

There is no way to prevent a tooth impaction. If the dental care provider determines that there is not enough room in the mouth for the tooth, it may be removed.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

An impacted tooth can sometimes cause pressure on the other teeth and a change in the bite. A rare complication is a cyst, or fluid-filled sac, that forms in the tissue around the unerupted tooth.
