|An impacted tooth occurs when it is unable to emerge from under the skin of the gums. There are several reasons behind an impacted tooth. Some people will have no symptoms of the tooth, while others will experience a variety of symptoms.
The severity of the problems you face from an impacted tooth can help determine the type of treatment for it.
Treatment OptionsThere are three basic options for treating an impacted tooth. The decision on what type of treatment is something that a dental professional can help with. Our professionals can use x-rays and other methods to determine what the impacted tooth is doing and what it can do in the future. This can help you decide what treatment option is the best.
The one option that we do not recommend is to ignore it. The symptoms of an impacted tooth include pain, swelling, bleeding of the gums and infection. If left untreated, the infraction can spread to other teeth, the gums and to other parts of the body.
