Extraction of Maxillary Vertically Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Vertical impaction and tilted impaction are the most common impaction type for the upper maxillary impacted wisdom teeth. Since the posterior molar region is narrow, especially for the high site impacted wisdom teeth, surgical operation is difficult. The vertically impacted wisdom teeth include buccal/palatal malpositioned, or mesially embedding and tilting, or buccally/palatally tilted impaction. One needs to determine the exact location of the wisdom teeth before extraction surgery, select the buccal or palatal surgical approach, and then select practical devices to avoid pushing the wisdom teeth into the maxillary sinus and finally to achieve successful removal of the wisdom teeth.
