    Background: Pulp stones are a group of calcified masses in the dental pulp of healthy, diseased, and unerupted teeth. Stones may exist either freely within the pulp tissue or be attached to or embedded in dentin. A single tooth may have 1–12 pulp stones or even more. Materials and Methods: A total of 100 orthopantomograph were collected. The prevalence of pulp stones was classified based on age group, sex, maxillary and mandibular arch, and type of tooth. Results: About 58% (n = 58) of the patients had pulp stones. With respect to the age group, the most commonly affected age group was found to be 21–30 years with 37% of pulp stone prevalence. Men were most commonly affected with 52.22%. The most commonly affected arch was the mandibular arch with 50.31% and the most commonly affected individual tooth was upper right maxillary first molar (16) with 12.10%. The first quadrant (upper right) was most commonly affected with 28.66%. Conclusion: Pulp stones lead to severe pain. Hence, by analyzing the cause and prevalence of pulp stones, it will be easier and more helpful in formulating a treatment plan.
