Taurodontism of multiple teeth: a case report

Vaghela, Dakshita Joy / Sinha, Ashish Amit

Taurodontism is a morpho-anatomical change in the shape of the tooth, in which the body of the tooth is enlarged and the roots are reduced in size. It is a rare dental anomaly affecting primarily the molars and is usually found in association with other anomalies or as a part of different syndromes. This anomaly, which was considered as a feature of primitive man, is also reported in modern man with a lower prevalence rate. This article presents a rare case of a female patient of 23 years who presented with taurodontism involving developed molars of all four quadrants, which was not associated with any other anomalies or syndromes.
