Tooth impaction refers to the failure of teeth to erupt into the mouth within the normal time, where the failure of outburst appears to originate from mechanical blocking. Tooth impaction may result from a number of local causal factors. These include arch length discrepancy, ectopic positioning of the teeth, presence of supernumerary teeth, bony barriers, and retained deciduous teeth.
Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
