Purpose The intention of the study is to present new classification of dental pulp stones according to their composition and clinical implication. Material and method The research was made on 40 pulps of the extracted teeth and 60 extirpated pulps of teeth with endodontic diagnosis of chronic pulpitis. The standard histological analysis of the pulp tissue was being made on material provided by means of endodontal extirpations and vertical cross-section made after indicated teeth extractions. Results The results obtained from the carried out examinations showed that dental calcifications can be classified such dentinal and non-dentinal. The dentinal calcifications are spherical, nodular, solitary and more numerous, they contain greater amount of organic matrix, they occur at early age and have hamartomatous aspect. The non-dentinal calcifications could be nodular spherical, irregular in shape or with punctform encrustations. They contain smaller amount of organic matrix, they occur in the middle or older age and have inflammatory dystrophic background. Conclusions 1. Using the experience from present classifications of dental calcifications and the classifications of other diseases and syndromes, together with our results, can be a reason to propose a new classification of dental calcifications, according to their composition (dentinal and non-dentinal). This can be confirmed histologically.2. The new classification will enable us to determinate the composition of denticles according to the age of patients, without any histological analysis.3. When they are classified such non-dentinal, dental practitioner is obligated to send the patient to subsequent or supplementary inspection, primarily echo survey to abdomen, for early detecting of calcifications and calculus in other organs. Pulp stones have been compared to kidney and gall bladder stones.
