An impacted wisdom tooth, a common dental concern, arises when these third molars encounter obstacles preventing their normal eruption into the oral cavity. Typically, this obstruction is caused by neighboring teeth or the tooth’s inability to ascend in a vertical orientation.
The primary approach for managing an impacted wisdom tooth is through wisdom tooth extraction. The complexity of the procedure varies based on the degree of impaction and the angle at which the tooth is situated. The extraction process can range from a simple removal to a more intricate surgical procedure, contingent upon the specific circumstances.
