Pulp calcifications stones are discrete calcifications within the pulps of teeth. They are usually detected during radiographic examination as radiopaque areas of variable sizes and shapes. Localized pulp calcifications are microscopically apparent in more than half of the teeth in young adolescents. However, pulp stones extending to the entire dentition are not frequent. Studies indicate that patients with coronary artery disease show higher degree of pulp calcifications. Higher prevalence of pulp stones in multiple teeth may be ruled out as risk predictors for coronary artery disease and some other probabilities of associated diseases.
