Case of the Week: Pulp stone

This week I have a case of a pulp stone in the root canal space of a maxillary canine.  Pulp stones are incidental findings and do not need treatment.  This case is slightly enlarging the shape of the root canal.  Pulp stones present as a radiopaque entity in either the pulp chamber and/or root canal space.  They may be either singular or multiple.  It is important to note their presence should the tooth associated with a pulp stone ever need endodontic treatment.  Check out the case below.
