image How would you rate the likelihood in this case of each of the potential causes of unerupted image listed in Box 2.1?

A supernumerary tooth (Box 2.2) is the most likely cause of unerupted image. With an incidence of 1–3% in the premaxilla, supernumerary teeth (particularly the late-forming tuberculate type) are associated with delay or non-eruption of an upper permanent central incisor.
