Kenilworth, IL – Orthodontic issues that require treatment come in many forms. We often think of issues such as underbites, overbites and spacing issues, but impacted teeth can affect the function of a person’s smile. But what exactly are impacted teeth, and how can orthodontics help?
“Impacted teeth are teeth that are not able to fully erupt because they are blocked from doing so,” says Dr. Michael Stosich. “The impacted tooth is unable to push through the gums, often due to a spacing issue, and discomfort, as well as issues with how the bite is able to function, can occur.”
