Impacted teeth are teeth that have passed the eruption stage but are still attached in the jaw bone. Impacted teeth cause aesthetic and functional problems and may lead to the root resorption of adjacent teeth and development of jaw cyst and other lesions. In addition, impacted teeth in implant area may affect implants. Impacted teeth can be treated by extraction or orthodontic traction. In recent years, the restoration of missing teeth through implanting has received considerable attention. In this paper, the epidemiology and diagnosis of impacted teeth, orthodontic treatment, and implantation were reviewed for the purpose of providing reference for the clinical treatment of impacted teeth.

Key words: impacted teeth, dental implant, osseointegration
