Abstract

Mesially and horizontally high impacted wisdom tooth is seldom seen, while middle site and low site impacted wisdom tooth is often seen. When the mesial crown edge of the wisdom tooth bears bigger resistance during shifting, the occlusal plane of the wisdom tooth will be parallel to the central axis of the second molar, which forms the mesially and horizontally impacted wisdom tooth. The key extraction surgical point is to separate the crown and root using a surgical handpiece for mesially and horizontally middle site impacted wisdom tooth. For the low site wisdom tooth, it is often embedded in bone, and during tooth extraction, the bone should be removed to create a window to expose the crown, neck, and root, and then the crown and root could be separated.
