Edmund Bailey
Post-operative pain is an area of oral surgery that concerns both patients and practitioners. Adequate management of pain and anxiety in oral surgery is an essential component of any oral surgery service. In this paper, we explore the science behind pain and the drugs available to manage post-operative pain. Discussion is focussed on the analgesics available on the dental practitioners' formulary and the evidence base supporting their use. We explore the beneficial and adverse effects of these analgesics. We also discuss recent controversies relating to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and opioids...

Osteonecrosis of the jaws (ONJ) can be a serious complication of radiation and anti-resorptive therapies. At present, patients due to undergo radiotherapy are required to have a dental assessment to treat current or anticipated dental disease prior to commencing treatment. However no agreed guidelines are in place for those due to start anti-resorptive therapy for cancer. More patients are now being treated with various drug therapies and new combinations of drugs with unknown long-term effects, with many patients now surviving their disease for longer periods of time...

Aliya Hasan, Dapo Akintola
Gorlin-Goltz syndrome encompasses a variety of clinical signs and symptoms including important oral manifestations which general dental practitioners should be aware of. In light of the risk of malignancy it is important to be aware of this syndrome and recognise the need for early referral for multidisciplinary management. This paper aims to discuss Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, the pathophysiology of the condition and address the wide range of clinical manifestations. The author will pay particular attention to the oral manifestations of the condition and the management of such anomalies...

AIM To report the findings of a service evaluation of an NHS practice-based minor oral surgery service. METHOD A service evaluation including a retrospective analysis of activity and outcome data and assessment of patient and practitioner satisfaction. RESULTS 623 appointments were arranged, with a mean waiting time of 43 days. Treatment provided included: surgical removal of third molars and non-third molars, surgical endodontics and other surgical and oral medicine cases (29.7%, 44.1%, 3.0% and 23.4% of cases respectively)...

Clare Lawrence
The purpose and intention of this article is to help provide an overview and understanding of the dento-legal issues which can arise when treating patients who are undergoing oral surgery procedures in primary care. The focus will be on the initial stages of assessment, diagnosis and treatment planning, which are essential factors required to appropriately fulfil the requirement of obtaining valid consent. The importance of getting consent right has been highlighted in the context of the Montgomery case and which is further supported by the requirement and importance of accurate and full record keeping in this regard...

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.

#17
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...
