  •  If the tooth is not creating any problem, then you need not be worried but as you are wearing the denture plate and with time, as the resorption of the bone takes place, then this impacted tooth may start getting irritated and may create problem like pain and can get infected. If it happens then you may have to get it pulled out. For more info on dental topics, you can browse our site http://www.identalhub.com/index.aspx
