The future of teeth with calcified canals appears much brighter today than ever before due to the advancements in diagnostic aids and instrumentation techniques. Prevalence of free pulp stones in the coronal pulp tissue is most commonly seen, but calcification in the mid root canal space is rare.

Usage of ultrasonic instruments in this case have shown better prognosis in managing periapical pathology.
