Extensive calcification of the pulp is a pathologic condition that occurs as an answer to various factors (trauma, caries, periodontal disease). The increase in the amount of calcification may lead to partial or complete radiographic, but not microscopic, obliteration of the pulp chamber and root canals. Complete calcific degeneration (pulpal obliteration) may be found in two forms, generalized or localized. The generalized form which is presented in the present case report is probably part of the aging process.
