Abstract

Taurodont teeth are characterised by large pulp chambers at the expense of roots. An enlarged pulp chamber, apical displacement of the pulpal floor and no constriction at the level of the cement-enamel junction are the characteristic features of taurodont tooth. Permanent dentition is more commonly affected than deciduous dentition. This paper presents a case of multiple taurodontic deciduous molars and treatment of taurodontic carious mandibular deciduous second molar without its permanent successor using white mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA).
