Aim of this paper is to investigate the particular anatomic features of the endodontic space of the maxillary and mandibular third molars in the general population of Croatia. A total of 106 fully developed third molars (of which 56 maxillary and 50 mandibular) has been analyzed. The respective number of roots and of root-canals, the structure of the roots, and the curvature and absolute length of the root-canals were analyzed. In most cases, the upper third molars examined had three roots (83.9%) and the lower molars in most cases were single-rooted (56.0%). The upper third molars had mostly three root-canals (75.1%), and the lower third molars two (90.0%). In the both jaws, the most frequent were the third molars having all their canals curved (60.7% in the upper and 84.0% in the lower jaw). In the upper third molars, the lateral and accessory canals were found in 12.5% of cases, whereas in the lower third molars it was so in as few as 4.0% of cases. The Student t-test showed statistically significant differences (p<0.05) in the length of the root-canals, namely the mesiobuccal and the distobuccal being statistically remarkably shorter than the palatinal ones. The same test showed that in the lower third molars the mesial root-canals, although just very slightly, were statistically longer than the distal ones. The results obtained are in compliance with similar results by other authors ; however, they tend to show some specific population-related features.
