Why My Teeth Hasn’t Shown Up Yet

Elmekahil, Talal Khalifa (2018-05-03)

Delayed tooth emergence (DTE) is a clinical term used when exposure of a tooth or multiple teeth through the oral mucosa is overdue, according to population norms based on chronologic age. DTE is common in childhood and adolescence, yet it is often overlooked or dismissed in pediatric primary care. Timely screening and recognition of DTE by clinicians can minimize medical, developmental, functional, and esthetic problems resulting from untreated underlying local and systemic causes
