20-tooth or buried tooth is called a tooth that has not come out even though it has passed the time to get out where it should come out in the mouth. Because all of the embedded teeth remain inside the jawbone, they may not be visible. Teeth in which part of the teeth is visible in the mouth and the remaining part remains under the gum are also called semi-buried teeth.
Among the reasons why teeth remain decayed are;
Closing the front of the tooth by displacing neighboring teeth,
Lack of space in the mouth due to jaw tightness,
Premature loss of milk teeth
Infection (inflammation) that occurs under them due to untreated caries of the baby teeth located on the teeth when it’s time to ride can be considered to affect driving.
Although which teeth will be buried varies from individual to individual, it is often the lower twenty-year-old tooth, the upper twenty-year-old tooth, and the 3rd. incisors (canine tooth, canine tooth) are the teeth that remain most buried. There are cases when other teeth remain embedded. Teeth that have been buried must first be evaluated from an orthodontic point of view. Many embedded teeth, especially incisors, which greatly affect the aesthetics and function of the patient, can be performed in a healthy way with orthodontic treatment.
There are many factors that affect the fact that 20-year-old teeth remain embedded. Sometimes one of these reasons, sometimes more than one, can be effective at the same time..
