Pulp stones are isolated calcifications that can be seen in the pulp tissue, dentin, or both. Both pathological and physiological causes can cause it. Dental pulp is a highly fibrovascular tissue that is housed in a stiff chamber made up of cementum, dentine, and enamel. This environment provides both strong mechanical support and defense against the microbially active oral environment. Any tooth in the maxilla or mandible, including deciduous, permanent, erupted, and unerupted teeth, can develop pulp stones, which are discrete or embedded masses of calcium that can develop in the coronal and root regions of the pulp organ. They are the unintentional discovery in the typical radiograph, and they don’t show any symptoms until they press against a nerve. They are categorized as real pulp stones because of the way that dentin, or odontoblast, forms them.
