Impacted Tooth Extraction

Explainer Video

Impacted tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove teeth that have not properly erupted through the gum line, often due to lack of space or abnormal positioning. The most commonly impacted teeth are the wisdom teeth, located at the back of the mouth. However, other teeth can also become impacted and require removal. Impacted teeth can cause various problems, including pain, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth. Extraction of impacted teeth is a proactive measure to prevent such complications and maintain oral health.
