When a tooth fails to erupt properly, it results in a condition called impaction. After wisdom teeth, the most commonly impacted teeth are the canines. To prevent this from having a negative impact on your oral health and function, Aspire surgeons provide treatment for impacted canines in locations across Salt Lake City. Call us today to learn more and schedule your appointment with our skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
What is an Impacted Tooth?
In some cases, a tooth does not break through the gum and remains stuck in the bone and gum tissues. This is known as an impacted tooth. The wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the teeth that most commonly become impacted. These teeth often become impacted because there is not enough room in the dental arch for them to fully and properly erupt. Impacted wisdom teeth are typically removed in order to avoid complications with the health of the teeth, gums, and jawbone.
