Pulp calcifications stones are discrete calcifications within the pulps of teeth. They are a frequent finding on bitewing and periapical radiographs. Johnson and Bevelander stated that a single tooth may have stones ranging from 1 to 12 or even more, with sizes varying from minute particle to large masses that occlude the pulp space. They often develop in teeth that appear quite normal in other respects. They have been seen in both functional as well as embedded teeth. Inspite of this frequent occurrence, they have received relatively little attention in textbooks. The purpose of this review was to examine these pulp stones from all the aspects including their pathogenesis, clinical aspects, histopathology, current perspectives and contemporary research on the same.
