Impacted teeth are a common issue in orthodontic treatment. Due to the teeth not erupting normally, they can lead to misalignment and disturbed occlusal relationships. Traditional orthodontic methods largely rely on the experience and techniques of the practitioner, but they often have certain limitations. To enhance the precision and effectiveness of orthodontic treatment for impacted teeth, this paper introduces the technique of three-dimensional finite element analysis. This method, based on computer technology, allows for accurate simulation and prediction of complex physical phenomena. In the field of orthodontics, finite element analysis can simulate the process of tooth movement and tissue remodeling, providing a more scientific basis for clinical treatment. It is hoped that the results from the finite element analysis will provide clinicians with more precise treatment plans, thus improving the accuracy and effectiveness of orthodontic treatments for impacted teeth.
