|•||Poorly Positioned: Some teeth come in creating a bad bite for the patient. This may be due to overcrowding, extra teeth, or a tooth that erupted in an unusual position. When teeth are removed due to positioning, this is done working in tandem with an orthodontist, who will then see to the patient's bite.|
|•||Impacted: An impacted tooth is a tooth that does not erupt, or fully erupts. A tooth can become impacted when there is lack of room or if the tooth is poorly positioned. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are often impacted due to a lack of sufficient space. An impacted tooth is subject to decay. Food debris and bacteria can enter space between the tooth and gums causing decay and gum disease.|
|•||Unhealthy: An unhealthy tooth is a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. This may be a tooth that is severely decayed, fractured or broken beyond repair, or has died. An unhealthy tooth can be painful and damaging to neighboring teeth.|
