Signs You Have an Impacted Tooth
Having an impacted tooth means that you have a tooth that is stuck and cannot emerge from the gums fully. This could be anything from a canine to a wisdom tooth. Teeth can get stuck for any number of reasons, such as the mouth not having enough room for the tooth to come in, the tooth coming in at a poor angle, or the tooth being slow to erupt.

If you notice pain in the gums where a tooth should be coming in but you don't see signs that the tooth is breaking through the gums, you need have your teeth evaluated. Even if the tooth partially erupts so you can see part of the tooth, this is also a type of impaction that needs to be looked at and treated. When you schedule an appointment with us, we can look at your smile to see how the impacted tooth needs to be treated to prevent damage to the surrounding teeth, gums, and nerves.
