Delayed tooth eruption can affect the accuracy of orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning and could delay overall treatment. A girl, aged 7 years 4 months, who had unilateral delayed eruption of several teeth was successfully treated. The evaluation of delayed tooth eruption should be considered by the orthodontist because the role of these teeth can affect the overall treatment of malocclusion. In patients with delayed tooth eruption, careful and accurate diagnosis and treatment planning will allow the orthodontist to start treatment at the proper stage and might reduce the overall orthodontic treatment time.
