A young cat was presented with oral discomfort, gingival swelling and delayed eruption of the permanent dentition. Radiography confirmed the presence of unerupted teeth and identified alveolar bone pathology. Operculotomy was performed to expose the embedded teeth. Eruption and the potential etiology of disturbances to normal dental eruption are discussed.
