Objective. The objective was to examine dental and periodontal status of adult Croatian 18th century population and compare the results with literature data. Design. 104 specimens from the crypt of Požega cathedral were grouped into three female and three male groups according to age. Caries was determined by visual inspection and dental probe. Ante and post mortem teeth losses were recorded. Periodontal status was determined according to the length of exposed tooth root from alveolar crest to cemento-enamel junction. The presence of dehiscences and fenestrations was recorded on facial and oral plate of alveolar bone. The statistical significance of the recorded values was tested using chi-square test. Results. Ante- and post mortem teeth loss was 19, 57% and 24, 91%, respectively. The teeth most frequently lost postmortem were incisors, the canines were best preserved. The frequency of carious lesions in both jaws was the highest in molars (26, 63% in maxilla and 28, 10% in mandible), while central incisors exhibited least carious lesions (11, 59 and 1, 92%). The most frequently affected surfaces were occlusal, followed by proximal and facio-oral. The percentage of teeth with either moderate or considerable bone loss was higher in females. The frequency of considerable bone loss increased significantly with age (p
