    This slide series illustrates the classifications of wisdom tooth impaction: Mesial, distal, vertical and horizontal.

  • <p>Mesial impaction:</p><p>The orientation of the tooth is tilted toward the front of the mouth.</p>
     

    Mesial impaction:

    The orientation of the tooth is tilted toward the front of the mouth.

  • <p>Distal impaction:</p><p>The tilt of the tooth has a backward orientation.</p>
     

    Distal impaction:

    The tilt of the tooth has a backward orientation.

  • <p>Verical impaction:</p><p>The alignment of the tooth is fairly normal.</p>
     

    Verical impaction:

    The alignment of the tooth is fairly normal.

  • <p>Horizontal impaction:</p><p>The tooth lies on its side.</p>
