When teeth are prevented from erupting into the mouth properly, they are referred to as impacted. Teeth that have not erupted are not necessarily impacted. It may be that it is still too early in someone’s dental development, and as time passes it might grow in properly. A dentist must examine a patient’s mouth and the x-rays to determine if the teeth are impacted or will not grow in properly. Impacted teeth may cause problems which can result in infection, decay of adjacent teeth, gum disease or formation of a cyst or tumor from the follicle (the tissue which formed the crown of the tooth). Many dentists recommend removal of impacted wisdom teeth to prevent potential problems.
