REVIEW
Jackie E Brown
A number of salivary gland diseases may present with a wide variety of symptoms to the general dental practitioner, or may appear as unexpected findings on dental radiographs. Careful clinical examination in combination with appropriate imaging will assist practitioners in identifying whether further investigation or referral is required. This article explores the main types of salivary gland diseases and their potential pathology.

REVIEW
David Andrew
General dental practitioners are less confident at diagnosing radiopaque lesions of the jaws than radiolucent ones, possibly because the incidence of jaw radiopacities is comparatively low. The current review covers the majority of radiopaque lesions that are referred for a specialist opinion, and focuses on those lesions that occur commonly or those that mimic other diagnoses. The majority of radiopaque jaw lesions represent normal anatomy/normal variants or superimposed soft tissue calcifications that are typically of no clinical significance...

Nicholas Drage
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) can be a useful adjunct to conventional plain film radiography, but its use must be carefully justified as the radiation dose is generally higher. Factors affecting the dose include the field of view (FOV) size, the exposure factors, the angle of rotation and voxel size. Once justified, the exposure should be fully optimised to ensure the dose to the patient is kept as low as possible while ensuring there is no reduction in the diagnostic yield. The European Commission (EC) and the Faculty of General Dental Practice (FGDP)(UK) have published selection criteria on the use of CBCT in dentistry...

Removable dentures are worn by 20% of the UK population and two thirds of these individuals have denture stomatitis. Poor oral hygiene is commonplace among this group, as is smoking and xerostomia, which also contribute to the development of denture stomatitis. A complex polymicrobial biofilm is able to proliferate on the surface of denture materials and matures to form visible denture plaque. This denture plaque biofilm stimulates a local inflammatory process that is detectable clinically as erythema, and hyperplasia...

Anthony Griffin
Manufacturing of custom-made dental devices such as removable dentures, fixed prosthodontics and orthodontics are subject to the requirements of the Medical Devices Directive (MDD). Many dental laboratories often enhance these requirements by implementing quality assurance procedures that then provide enhanced consistency. this paper provides a dental technologist's view of some of the systems currently being used in dental laboratories to provide a quality assured product and associated issues.

Charlotte Stilwell
The concept of a two-implant overdenture as the minimum standard of care or first choice treatment for the edentulous mandible was first proposed in 2002 and has since been backed by an overwhelming body of evidence supporting greater patient satisfaction and improved quality of life. This article examines the implant overdenture concept and its various options and discusses best practice from both the patient's and a medico-legal standpoint.

There are a number of conditions that can present as a lump on the face. The general dental practitioner is uniquely trained in head and neck anatomy and pathology and should be able to identify these important conditions and consider appropriate investigations. Understanding what requires urgent specialist assessment and what can be referred routinely can be difficult, but is crucial to high quality patient outcomes. This article aims to simplify common conditions that may present as a lump on the face or be an incidental finding within the primary dental care setting...
