Abstract

Taurodontism is a rare dental anomaly defined as a change in shape of the tooth caused by the failure of Hertwig's epithelial sheath to invaginate at the proper horizontal level. The characteristic features of this anomaly are an enlarged pulp chamber with apical displacement of the pulpal floor, and no constriction at the level of the Cemento-enamel junction. They occur most frequently as an isolated anomaly or it may be associated with certain syndromes. Permanent dentition is more commonly affected than deciduous dentition, seen unilaterally or bilaterally, and in any combination of teeth or quadrants. This case report describes a case of generalised taurodontism involving all the deciduous molars and permanent molars in a 7 years old male patient.
