Delayed eruption and abnormal morphology of the primary incisors following intubation may be due to follicular displacement and localized trauma caused by the process of intubation. Result of such damage included palatal groove formation, defective incisors and acquired clefts. This clinical report presents effect of intubation on the primary dentition of premature low-birth-weight children prior to tooth eruption.
