Introduction: A wisdom tooth or third molar is one of the three molars and it is located distal in the dental arch. The age at which wisdom teeth erupt is variable, but generally occurs between seventeens and early twenties. Wisdom teeth usually don’t need to be removed if they’re impacted but aren’t causing any problems. Extraction of this type of third molars can bring more risks for complications than benefit. Aim: The purpose of this study was to analyze the dental status of third-year students and to determine the presence of third molars. Also, the extracted and impacted teeth were noted. Material and methods: In the analysis a total of 20 students, 14 were females and 6 males from third year study of dental medicine. The data for this study was collected with anamnestic questionnaire, including the information about the molars that were extracted. An intraoral examination and an RTG status also were taken for proving the presence of the wisdom teeth in the oral cavity. Results: 30% of the students don’t have any third molar erupted and they are all females, 20% have 1 third molar erupted, and they are also females. 35% have two third molars erupted (4-Females and 3-Males).There is no presence of three third molars erupted. Only 15% have all four wisdom teeth erupted and they are only males. Conclusion: The main conclusion from the analysis is that no student has an extracted third molar. In females’ students there is only situations with one and two erupted wisdom teeth but in male students’ situation is different and part of them have four erupted wisdom teeth
