Introduction: The objective of this article was to review the diagnostic tools and treatment modalities used in root canal treatment of taurodont teeth in published case reports and case series. Materials and Methods: An electronic search of the literature was performed in PubMed (Medline), EBSCOhost databases, and the reference lists of articles that had been published from 1990 to 2019. Data of the articles that had been included were extracted. Results: The initial search led to the retrieval of 558 articles. After removing duplicates, 121 articles were left, the titles of these articles along with abstracts were read which resulted in the selection of 48 articles for full-text reading. Thirty-six articles were later selected for data extraction and qualitative analysis. In all these articles, treatment was discussed for taurodontism. Conclusion: Treating a taurodont tooth can be quite a challenge and careful evaluation and treatment planning is important for a successful outcome.
