    Aim: The aim of this study is to analyze the prevalence of pulp stones in Indian population sample using radiographic records. Materials and Methods: The study is conducted to assess the prevalence of pulp stones using radiographic records among Indian population. The radiographs that were included in analysis comprised 187 male and 187 female radiographs. In each radiograph, only premolars and molars with complete roots and sound crown were examined for pulp stones. Results: The panoramic images of 374 subjects were examined which include 187 female and 187 male. Among them, almost 54 subjects were observed with pulp stone; of which, 35 were female (65%) and 19 were male (35%). Pulp stones were detected in 119 teeth in a total of 54 subjects. Among them, female were found to be more than male subjects. The most affected arch was found to be maxillary arch, and most affected teeth was found to be maxillary first molar. Conclusion: The prevalence of pulp stones varies among each population. From the study, the prevalence of pulp stone was found to be more in women than men in South Indian population. This may be due to various factors such as bruxism, iatrogenic factors such as trauma, and longstanding irritation to the pulp.
