Abstract

Taurodontism is a morpho-anatomical developmental anomaly rarely seen in teeth. It is characterised by lack of constriction at the level of cementoenamel junction with elongated pulp chambers and apical displacement of bifurcation or trifurcation of roots. This gives the tooth a rectangular or cylindrical appearance. This paper reports successful endodontic therapy of cases with hypo-, meso- and hypertaurodontism in healthy individuals with no associated syndrome or anomaly.
