Tooth eruption is defined as the movement of a tooth from its site of development within the alveolar process to its functional position in the oral cavity. It is a complex process that can be influenced by a number of general factors like genetics, nutrition, preterm birth, socioeconomic factors, hormonal factors, various systemic diseases and some local factors. Timing of tooth eruption depends on the chronologic age. Marked deviation in eruption timing and developmental stage at which tooth erupts may confuse a clinician and affect the treatment planning so knowledge of such cases helps in delivering proper treatment. This article reports a case where eruption of rootless premolar is seen in a child of 7 year of age.
