Issue Date
Tooth impaction may lead to malocclusion, root resolution, cyst or aberrant changes in adjacent teeth. Clinical and radiographic examinations are used to locate the impaction, and appropriate treatment plans must be made to relocate the impacted tooth. When surgically exposing the impacted tooth, periodontal considerations to conserve maximum amount of soft and hard tissue are used. Oral hygiene instructions are emphasized to maintain sound periodontal health. Securing enough space for the impacted tooth and proper anchorage is important. Proper use of force and mechanics is crucial to prevent such complications as root resolution. Various patterns of orthodontic traction may be employed as situation permits. Most impaction cases can be managed with orthodontic traction to restore function and esthetics, provided that early detection and proper diagnosis and treatment planning are made.
