BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Health services should be targeted toward those most in need of health care. Poor oral health disproportionately affects Māori, Pacific Island, and socioeconomically deprived New Zealanders of all ages, and oral health care services should be prioritised to such groups. In New Zealand, free oral health care is available for all children up to the age of 17. On the other hand, adult dental services are provided on a user-pays basis, except for a limited range of basic services for some adults, access to which varies regionally...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore changes in dentists' promotion and use of implants in New Zealand over the past 10 years. METHODS: A postal survey was conducted of a random sample of 807 New Zealand registered dentists, using a 23-item questionnaire adapted from one used in a similar survey in 2004. RESULTS: The participation rate was 54.3%. In the past 10 years, the percentage of dentists providing an implant service has increased from 49...

REVIEW
L M Jones, R Cotter, K M Birch
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Suicide rates among dentists and a perceived elevated risk for suicide have been debated in the academic literature. It has filtered into the public psyche that dentists have the highest suicide rate of any occupation. The present review seeks support for both protagonist and antagonist positions from multidisciplinary perspectives. Contemporary risk factors and strategies for intervention and the prevention of suicide in dentistry are explored. METHODS: An online database search for articles and reports, with selected target words, was conducted for peer reviewed publications on suicide in the dental profession, and for factors contributing to dentist suicide...

M Chow, S Costain, M Brosnan, C Murray
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Sugar, a known aetiological factor in dental decay, has been used in paediatric medications as a bulking agent, preservative and to improve taste. Although artificial sweeteners have largely replaced sugar, some prescribed and over-the-counter (OTC) paediatric medications and supplements containing sugar are still available in New Zealand. Little is currently known about the knowledge, opinions and practices of staff in NZ pharmacies regarding sugar-containing paediatric medications...

Bridgman JB
BACKGROUND: A 71-year-old female presented with a left submandibular space abscess. This was found to be due to large accumulations of calculus on the lingual flanges of her lower denture ulcerating the floor of the mouth. She had not taken the prosthesis out since it was provided as an immediate denture after extractions 54 years previously. At presentation she could not take her denture out as the calculus locked the denture under lingual undercuts. The denture was sectioned in the midline to remove it and the submandibular abscess was drained via a neck incision...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: During the First World War, 10% of New Zealand's population served in the armed forces, and around one in five of those were killed. In commemoration of 100 years since WW1, this study uses retrospective data to report on the oral health of NZ service personnel. METHODS: 325 Pākehā, 165 Māori and 150 Samoan male recruits who served in the NZ Expeditionary Force between 1914 and 1918 were randomly selected and their personnel files accessed through Archives New Zealand...

R Kennedy, C Murray, J Leichter
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Among other restorative strategies, the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) provides benefits for dental implant treatment to replace teeth lost as a result of trauma. While ACC has funded over 15,000 dental implants since 2002, the outcomes of this treatment and patient perceptions of this treatment have not been investigated. The aim of this study was to investigate the perceptions of the dental implant treatment outcomes and reasons for failure to complete restorative treatment in patients who had undergone trauma-related implant surgery funded by ACC between February 2006 and September 2009, but had not completed the prosthetic component of the treatment...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Oral squamous cell carcinoma is characterised by varied clinical manifestations and is often diagnosed at an advanced stage. This article highlights a case of gingival squamous cell carcinoma which was initially diagnosed and treated as localised periodontitis. METHODS: A 64-year-old Caucasian male had a 2-year history of discomfort and swelling around his upper anterior teeth. His dentist diagnosed localised periodontitis around tooth 11...

REVIEW
W P Fogarty, B K Drummond, M G Brosnan
Radiography can serve as a useful aid in the diagnosis of numerous oral conditions, with a place in nearly all of the disciplines of dentistry. As such it can have a beneficial role in caring for the oral health of children and adolescents. The following review discusses the use of radiography in the diagnosis of oral conditions in children and adolescents, with particular reference to the diagnosis of dental caries, dental trauma, growth and development and in other dental scenarios, along with the importance of incidental findings...

Colleen Murray, Ian Kenneth Densie, Christian Morgan
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Adolescents and emerging adults can provide dentists with many challenges. Little information is available on their perceptions of dental costs once they turn 18 and dentistry is no longer State-funded. The aim of this study was to explore the use of dental care by Southland students in years 12 and 13, their perceptions of the cost of four common dental procedures, self-related oral health and dental self-care habits, time off school related to dental problems, and knowledge and views regarding fluoride...

UNLABELLED: Background: This study examined the spatial accessibility of the population of metropolitan Auckland, New Zealand to the bus network, to connect them to primary health providers, in this case doctors (GP) and dentists. Analysis of accessibility by ethnic identity and socio-economic status were also carried out, because of existing health inequalities along these dimensions. The underlying hypothesis was that most people would live within easy reach of primary health providers, or easy bus transport to such providers...

J Olsen, C Sealey
We present an uncommon diagnosis in a 34-year-old female with a non-healing extraction socket. Incisional biopsy revealed multi-nucleated giant cells suggestive of central giant cell granuloma (CGCG). The computed tomography (CT) report made incidental note of a parathyroid mass. The parathyroid hormone (PTH) level was checked and found to be abnormally high. A diagnosis of brown tumour of the mandible was made. The patient was referred to a head and neck surgeon and the parathyroid mass was removed. The mandibular lesion was managed conservatively and continues to regress post-normalisation of PTH levels...
