Abstract

Taurodontism leads to constriction of the cementoenamel junction, which results in vertically elongated pulp chambers, apical displacement of the pulpal floor, and bifurcation or trifurcation of the root. This trait can be seen in permanent and primary teeth, in a single tooth or in several molars in the same quadrant, and can be unilateral or bilateral. We report a rare case of a 26-year-old male patient presening with taurodontism involving all the developed molars of all four quadrants, which was not associated with any other anomalies or syndromes.
