Primary failure of eruption (PFE) is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary disease mainly characterized by unilateral or bilateral posterior tooth open bite and absence of obvious local hindrance or systemic factors. PFE is related to the abnormal mechanism of tooth eruption. Its etiology is closely related to the mutation of parathyroid hormone receptor 1 (PTH1R) gene, but the underlying mechanism remains to be elucidated. This article reviews the research status of hot gene PTH1R signal defects related to the pathogenesis of PFE and osteoclast function, dental follicle development, alveolar bone formation, periodontal ligament formation, and root formation, to provide reference for the study of etiological genetics and molecular mechanism of PFE.

Key words: primary failure of eruption, parathyroid hormone receptor 1, osteoclast, dental follicle, alveolar bone, periodontal ligament
