Could braces fix a horizontally impacted wisdom tooth?

No. If the tooth was erupted, it might be possible to straighten. While theoretically possible, a horizontally impacted tooth would have to be exposed, brought into the mouth with a fixed orthodontic attachment, and then attempted to orthodontically bring into a proper alignment. Similarly impacted cuspids are sometimes brought into place this way, but not non-essential wisdom teeth.
Possibly... But you would be hard pressed to find an orthodontist to tackle this task due to the location of the tooth, lack of space in your mouth, and that wisdom teeth are not needed. The cost may also be prohibitive. Less expensive and better for your health to extract the tooth.

Theoretically, yes. From a theoretical view, orthodontic treatment with a TAD (temporary anchorage device) could possibly "fix" your impacted wisdom tooth if it is not too deep or trapped under the adjacent tooth. However, from a practical view, most dental professionals would not recommend it. Depending on the position of the tooth and if any pathology is present will determine if and what treatment is indicated. Read more...
