Share Abstract:

A rare case of multiple taurodont teeth

Shetty, Neeta / Singh, Vimmi / Kamath, Kundabala

Taurodonts are teeth with enlarged pulp chambers and apical displacement of the bifurcation or trifurcation of roots. The molars and premolars are the teeth that are affected and are more common in the permanent dentition. Taurodontism is usually associated with several syndromes. These teeth have normal coronal structure and can be identified only by radiographs. This condition can be a challenge to an endodontist because of the complex pulp space anatomy. This case report describes a unique case of taurodontism in an otherwise healthy patient whose existing molars are all taurodonts and root canal treatment of a taurodont tooth.

Keywords: endodontic management, hypertaurodontism, permanent molars, pulp chamber
