Abstract

Multiple unerupted teeth with no obvious etiology is a rare dental anomaly. Various local and systemic factors have been implicated in the failure of eruption of multiple permanent teeth. But the localization of the genetic defect in the phenotype of failure of eruption is largely unknown at present. Our aims in this article were to consolidate and organize the available information regarding the molecular biology of tooth eruption and to corroborate the current evidence with the report of 2 adult cases of failure of eruption of multiple permanent teeth without a known cause.
