Definition:a developmental anomaly involving molar teeth, whereby the body of the tooth and pulp chamber is enlarged vertically at the expense of the roots and the root canal length; characteristic features include an enlarged pulp chamber, absence of the usual constriction at the cemento-enamel junction, and apical shift of the pulp chamber floor and furcation area down the root
