The management of two cases of hypertaurodontism, is presented. The first case shows this uncommon dental anomaly in all the four permanent first molars. The second case is concerned with endodontic management of a hypertaurodontic mandibular second premolar. The authors wish to highlight the importance of careful radiographic examination in diagnosing this rare dental anomaly in view of the difficulties encountered in performing endodontic treatment.
