In brief: Impacted tooth

This can not be prevented.
Your teeth grow with your body. Sometimes they are impacted and sometimes they are not. You should see a dentist to help determine if your impacted teeth need to be taken out.

In brief: Not preventable

either you have one, or you don't.
If you do, see an orthodontist who will work with an oral surgeon to correct this condition.
