Taurodontism is a relatively rare variance of human teeth. It is characterized by elongation of pulp chambers and the apical displacement of bifurcation or trifurcation of the roots, giving it a bull-like appearance. The prevalence of taurodontism in permanent teeth is not common and it is still rare in deciduous dentition. As a taurodont tooth shows wide variation in the size and shape of the pulp chamber with varying degrees of obliteration and canal configuration, root canal therapy becomes a challenge. In this article a case with taurodontism in deciduous dentition involving all molars is reported.
