Odontogenesis is a genetically controlled process evident as epithelial-mesenchymal interactions. These interactions are regulated by a group of highly conserved homeotic domains known as the “Homeobox genes”. This paper deals with various homeobox domains acting via transcription factors or secreted proteins. The functionality of genes expressed leads to tooth initiation and cuspal
