AUTHOR(S): Avinash Tejasvi ML and Harsha Bhayya
ABSTRACT:Taurodontism is a morphologic feature of generally multi-rooted teeth with large pulp chambers and shortened roots. As itis a developmental disturbance of a tooth that lacks constriction at the level of the cement–enamel junction (CEJ). It is characterized by vertically elongated pulp chamber, apical displacement of the pulpal floor and bifurcation or trifurcations of the roots. Although permanent molar teeth are most commonly affected, this change can also be seen in both the permanent and deciduous dentition, unilaterally or bilaterally, and in any combination of teeth or quadrants. In the present case we have used Shifman and Chanannel method as well as Seow WK, Lai PY method of calculation to diagnose various types of taurodont teeth which is an unique feature of this report.
