The teeth were evaluated based on the criteria described by Schiffman and chanelle. In order to determine the general prevalence of taurodontism, the proportion of taurodont teeth was calculated to the total number of subjects and was reported in percentage of Cases. To compare the prevalence of Taurodontism in Maxilla and Mandible and in left or right Sections, chi-square Test was used. Also for determining the difference of severity of taurodontism in Jaw and quarted Chi-Square test was administered.
Results: 23 patients (67.4%) and (49.3%) of Studied teeth, had Taurodontism. According to Chi-square test, there is no meaningful relationship between gender variables and prevalence of taurodontism (p value = 0.267) The most prevalence of taurodontism was 83,47% simultaneously in Maxillary right first and second Molars, mandibullary left first and second Molars and as so maxillary left first molar and mandibular right First molar with 35,4% had the lowest prevalence.
