The purpose of this article is to report the orthodontic treatment of a patient with extremely delayed development of the maxillary lateral incisors. At 7 years of age, the boy's permanent maxillary lateral incisors had not erupted. A radiograph showed no tooth germs in place, although well-defined radiolucent areas were evident. Removal of the radiolucent areas was contemplated, but it was rejected in favor of a conservative approach. At age 13, peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisors erupted; they were positioned during orthodontic treatment and reshaped with composite restorations, providing good esthetics and function.
