dc.description.abstract All academic tutors in the preclinical and clinical teaching are facing the problem with non accurate cavity preparations. The mistakes are related not only to dental amalgam restorations but to aesthetic restorations and endodontic cavities too. The aim of the present study was to measure the proper actual sizes of the clinical crown of molars and their variability in favour of more accurate cavity preparation in cariology and endodontics. 313 molar teeth are included in the study and following lengths were measured: mesiodistal, buccolingual, and buccal crown hight. The differences with commonly used in Bulgaria local literature sources are signifi cant. It can be useful for the practice some of the regular terminology in lectures and operative dentistry manuals to be reconsidered. Cavities with buccolingual size up to 1/3, convergence of cavity walls in cariology, and even the possibility of convergence in endodontic cavities is essential to be carefully revisied. Respecting the decreasing of the sizes of the crowns of human molars during evolution, due to modern food industry, will lead to better clinical decisions in favour of the most important treatment task: rare restoration replacement, lower ware rates, and lower rates of secondary caries. en_US
