Aim: To asses the prevalence of dental caries and ante mortem missing teeth in Croatia during the Middle Ages. Methods. Skeletal remains from the crypt of Bijelo Brdo, Osijek (Middle Ages) in the Eastern Croatia were exhumed between XIX. and XX century, and after cleaning, were stored in the Archeological Museum in Zagreb the capital. Nearly 100 skulls were examined and from these 85 were selected because the tooth-bearing areas in each quadrant were intact. Sex determinations were made from the long bones, pelvic girdle and skulls, and age determinations were based on eruption status ((Atlas approach) and or attrition patterns in the molar and premolar teeth. The data were analyzed using the statistical ANOVA programme and comparison were made with &2 test. Results. The percentage of ante mortem missing teeth increased slightly from 3.5% in the 18-25yr age group to 11.9% in the 35-40 yr olds, p<0.05. Mandibular and maxillary molars (35%) were the teeth most often ante mortem missing. Dental caries was different in all observed groups ; In primary dentition the incidence of dental caries was low (2.5%), and in the adults (12.1%), p<0.05. Osim što učestalost zubnog karijesa raste u starijih mjenja se i njihov položaj na zubima. Najučestaliji je aproksimalni karijes (3.9%), zatim sljedi okluzalni (2.9%9) i najmanja učestalost bukalnog karijesa (1.3%). Conclusion: It is suggested that factors other than diet and oral hygiene may have influenced caries prevalence in this population.
