Abstract

Submerged tooth is the one that is depressed below the occlusal plane. Dental ankylosis is thought to be a major cause of submergence. Submerged deciduous teeth have the potential to cause malocclusion not only by prevention of their exfoliation and subsequent replacement by permanent teeth but also by causing tilting of proximal teeth and extrusion of opposing tooth. The purpose of this report is to present three different cases of submerged deciduous teeth and their clinical effects.
