Abstract

A completely or partially unerupted maxillary anterior tooth poses an esthetic, psychological and functional concern, especially in children.

Aim: To evaluate the etiology, diagnosis and severity of impaction of permanent maxillary incisors in pediatric patients.

Methodology: Patients in the age group of 8-13 years who presented with completely or partially un-erupted maxillary anterior teeth were selected and evaluated on the basis of etiology and severity.

Result: Thick overlying mucosa and over retained primary teeth are the common etiologies seen in the cases discussed.

Conclusion: Early diagnosis and a prompt treatment can prevent complications. In most cases, Tooth erupts normally if enough space is created in time.
