An impacted tooth simply means that it is “stuck” and cannot erupt into function.
Patients frequently develop problems with impacted third molar (wisdom) teeth.
These teeth get “stuck” in the back of the jaw and can develop painful infections
among a host of other problems . The maxillary canine (upper canine) is the
second most common tooth to become impacted. The canine tooth is a critical
tooth in the dental arch and plays an important role in your “bite”. The canine
teeth are very strong biting teeth that have the longest roots of any human teeth.
They are designed to be the first teeth that touch when your jaws close together
so they guide the rest of the teeth into the proper bite.
