Impacted tooth refers to a tooth that has failed to fully emerge into its expected position, occur either because the path for their emergence is blocked, or because they have formed in the wrong position in the mouth. Most frequently on wisdom teeth and less frequently on other teeth like the canine.
Where there is inadequate space in the mouth for all the teeth, the last teeth to erupt often have insufficient room, because the space available has all been taken by the teeth which have already emerged. Under these circumstances, the later erupting teeth may grow through, but out of line, or alternatively, they may be unable to emerge fully. When a tooth fails to erupt, either fully or partially, it is described as being impacted.
