Taurodontism appears to have low incidence in primary dentition and very few cases are reported in the literature. An enlarged pulp chamber, apical displacement of the pulpal floor, and no constriction at the level of the cemento-enamel junction are the characteristic features. Endodontic treatment of taurodonts is often challenging and needs more time than usual treatment. This paper reports a case of four year child with taurodontic mandibular left second deciduous molars.
