Wisdom teeth, which are the third molar teeth, remain in the jawbone half or fully buried when the eruption paths are inclined and there is not enough space inside the mouth. They may cause swelling, inflammation, pain or cyst formation due to their position. In such a case, the impacted tooth must be taken with surgical intervention.
It is a frequently encountered condition that canine teeth, are impacted. It is possible that the buried canine teeth can continue to erupt in the mouth with orthodontic treatment, most of the time. However, the impacted canine should be surgically removed if it is in a horizontal position. If it remains impacted, there is a risk that it will damage the healthy tissues and the roots of other healthy teeth around it.
It is not right to expect the impacted wisdom and canine teeth to create another problem in order to extract them. When it is understood that they are not able to reach the mouth, measures should be taken against many different problems they can cause in the future
