Abstract Information regarding the prevalence of pulp calcifications in primary teeth is lacking. The occurrence of pulp calcifications in 120 primary maxillary and mandibular extracted teeth was evaluated radiographically. Twenty-five percent of second molars presented evidence of pulp calcifications; approximately 3\% of central incisors were calcified. No other categories of teeth displayed pulp involvement. The low occurrence of pulp calcifications in primary teeth support the view that the occurrence of pulp calcification increases with age.
