Pulpotomy Treatment of Taurodontic Teeth

Prastiwi Setianingtyas, Ayuningrum Dwi Laras

Abstract


Background: Taurodonsia is a dental anomaly that undergoes vertical dilation of the pulp chamber and has a short root. Teeth with taurodonsia affected by caries to the pulp must be treated endodontically first before restoration.  Case Report: a 4-year-old girl came in complaining of cavities in her lower jaw. After clinical examination, 84 teeth experienced deep dentin caries and from the results of radiographic photos, it was found that caries was almost close to the pulp horn with a large pulp chamber and short roots. The endodontic treatment carried out is pulpotomy and after that the final restoration uses a stainless steel crown. Conclusion: Taurodontia is a rare occurrence that requires a thorough clinical and radiographic examination to aid diagnosis and appropriate treatment planning. Pulpotomy can be an endodontic treatment option for primary teeth experiencing taurodontia based on objective and subjective considerations of the patient's condition
