Although many reports of the CHARGE association appear in the literature, the dental findings were never discussed before. In this report of two cases, both patients present with delayed eruption of the permanent teeth and a remarkable similarity of the eruption pattern of the mandibular teeth. One lower permanent central incisor is congenitally missing, while the other is malformed. The lower permanent laterals of JM have erupted lingually and interfere with his speech and function of the tongue. Mandibular retrognathism is present. TM had a V-shaped constricted upper arch, which was expanded in a first phase of orthodontic intervention. Fixed appliances are the future considerations for the correction of the malocclusion.
