Some of the calcifications found in the head and neck area are maxillary antroloiths, salivary sialoliths, nasolith and phlebolite. The pulp calcification or stone inside the pulps of teeth is one such distinctive finding. Bitewing and periapical radiographs are a frequent finding. There may be stones ranging from 1 to 12 or even more in a single tooth, with sizes ranging from minute particles to large masses that obscure the pulp space. They often grow in teeth which in other respects, appear very regular. Both functional and embedded teeth have been seen in them. The purpose of this chapter is to discuss all aspects of these pulp stones, including their pathogenesis, clinical aspects, histopathology, current perspectives, and contemporary studies.
