An impacted tooth is one that is stuck and is unable to erupt any further. This is a common occurrence amongst many individuals with their wisdom teeth (third molars). When this happens it can lead to painful infections occurring, along with a whole host of other oral issues. Because there is very limited functional use or wisdom teeth, when one becomes impacted, it is usually extracted. However, it is not just third molars that become impacted, it is also common with canines also.
