Endodontic treatment of hypertaurodontism with multiple bilateral taurodontism.
J Conserv Dent. 2013 Sep; 16(5):477-9.JC

Abstract

The term taurodontism is derived from the Latin word tauros, for "bull," and the Greek term odus, for "tooth," or "bull tooth." Taurodontism is a morpho-anatomical developmental anomaly, which is seen infrequently in teeth only. It is characterized by a deficiency in the constriction at the cement-enamel junction, with lengthened pulp chambers and apical displacement of the pulpal floor. This gives the tooth a quadrilateral or cylindrical look. This report presents a case of multiple bilateral taurodontism and the successful endodontic treatment of the tooth that had hypertaurodontism. A male patient was referred to the endodontic clinic with decayed left maxillary first molar. Hypertaurodontism was confirmed after clinical and radiographic examination. Panaromic X-rays revealed that all of the patient's molar teeth were taurodontic. Taurodontism offers challenges to the practitioner during shaping and disinfection and at the time of filling the root canals.
