Abstract

Orthodontic management of impacted teeth can be very complex and requires a carefully planned inter-disciplinary approach. The development of treatment plans must be based on the careful analysis of the clinical situation and identification of the correct force system necessary to obtain the desired tooth movement. Appliance design is developed according to the treatment objectives and desired force systems. This article presents an overview of Prevalence, Etiology, Sequelae, Diagnosis, and orthodontic management of impacted tooth.
