Impacted teeth are teeth that cannot erupt because it does not have room or may be coming in the wrong direction or position. The incidence of impacted teeth reaches 15%. The reasons for the impact of the teeth can be: 1. Lack of space in the dental arch. 2. early loss of deciduous teeth. 3. the abnormal position of the follicle, 4. fibrotic thickening of the mucoperiosteum and bone sclerosis, 5. cysts and tumors, 6. dilatations caused by trauma to the deciduous teeth, 7. overgrown teeth and odontomas. Accurate diagnosis is based on clinical examination and radiography, a treatment plan is made based on the etiology of the impact of the maxillary incisors, local condition, age of the patient, and dental age. For successful treatment, the following should be considered: the position and direction of the impacted tooth, the development of the tooth root, and the space available for the placement of the tooth in the dental arch. Treatment of impacted maxillary incisors is done by surgical or surgical-orthodontic methods. The purpose of this paper is to review the current literature on impacted maxillary incisors and to analyze the most contemporary approaches to the etiopathogenesis, clinic, diagnosis, and therapy of impacted teeth, with a special focus on impacted maxillary incisors. Update data on the therapy of impacted maxillary incisors (surgical and orthodontic), as well as the advantages and disadvantages of selected methods and their impact on the long-term prognosis of these anomalies. Working methodology: The work was carried out in the form of a "literature review" on impacted maxillary incisors. Conclusion: The most common causes of maxillary incisors are minor teeth and odontomas. . Surgical-orthodontic procedures are undertaken after the elimination of the etiological cause, the creation of the necessary space for the spontaneous eruption of the impacted tooth or to help its placement in a regular position in the dental arch.
