Could braces fix a horizontal impacted wisdom tooth?

In brief: Not easily

It means putting braces on all the other teeth for anchorage, surgically exposit the wisdom tooth and placing an attachment on the tooth, then gradually, over a very long time lifting the impacted tooth up into place.
Most probably the best solution is to have the wisdom tooth removed before it causes damage. See an orthodontic specialist for an initial evaluation (often free) to find out more.
