Background: The process of tooth eruption is influenced by local, systemic, and genetic factors. Any disturbances in these factors might lead to abnormalities in the eruption of the tooth. Aim: The aim of this narrative review is to classify and discuss the eruption and its abnormality in detail. Methods: This narrative review was performed through an electronic search of data for the articles dealing with eruption, theories of eruption, and eruption abnormalities from the following databases such as PubMed, Scopus, Medknow, WebMD, and IndMed. Results: Based on our search, we were able to retrieve the information from 15 articles. Conclusion: A mastered eye in evaluating the radiographs, the practitioner's acquaintance with associated abnormalities, and the patient's clear history including familial and traumatic history might pave the way in arriving at an approximate diagnosis.
