WHAT IS IMPACTION?
This means is that your wisdom teeth will not grow or erupt into a position that allows them to be functional teeth
Impaction may be due to soft tissues (i.e. Gums) or hard tissues such as other teeth or bone. Teeth that become impacted are generally more likely to cause problems due to Inflammation and Infection of the surrounding tissues
