To study the incidence of calcification of the stylohyoid ligament, 286 orthopantomographs were analyzed. All patients had no symptoms. The total incidence of calcification was noted to be high, at 84.4%. The number and the length of calcifications increased with age, and there was no relationship to sex or mandibular size. The phenomenon is often evident bilaterally. The variety of results reported in the references depends on different criteria in radiographic evaluation and in patient selection.
