Introduction: Pulp stones are separate calcified mass that we can observe in the dental pulp. The present study is conducted to evaluate the Incidence and Distribution of Pulp Stones Found in Radiographic Examination of Dental Patients in Sari.
Methods: In total, 493 panoramic radiographs from patients attending the dental clinics of at Mazandaran University of Medical Science, from January 2017 to April 2018 were examined.  The sample composed of 164 male and 329 female with age range of 10-60 years. About 3235 teeth were evaluated. Associations of pulp stones with different tooth types, sex, upper or lower arc and the side were noted.
Findings: The overall prevalence of pulp stones in the present population was found 15.21%. Females constituted 73.33% and males constituted 26.67%. No significant gender difference with the occurrence of pulp stones was observed. 37.14% was the incidence of pulp stones in left maxillary first molar which was considered to be the highest frequency compared to all other teeth.
Conclusion: In conclusion, maxillary first molars had maximum number of pulp stones and patients in the age group from 20-30 years had more pulp stones than the others. All this information could be of help during endodontic procedures.
