The pharyngeal arches develop in the human embryo around five weeks of
pregnancy. Disorders in the development of the first and second pharyngeal arches may
lead to significant malformations of the face and ears. Syndromes involving the
pharyngeal arches often involve tooth abnormalities, requiring regular dental follow-up
with specialized management by a multidisciplinary team.
