Long-term retrospective studies on the efficacy of implant retained bridgework are relatively few. In this study, 10 year follow-up results are reported on the rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible with osseointegrated implant anchored bridges. Fifteen patients were closely maintained and monitored using the conventional indices used in longitudinal… (More)
15 mandibular fixed prostheses supported by osseointegrated titanium implants were examined 3 years after insertion. No implants had been lost after 3 years and all prostheses were present and continuously functional. The morphotypic analysis of the microbial plaque taken from titanium implants adjacent to clinically inflamed tissues was different from that… (More)
A system is described for fluoridation of a small community water supply. The design of the equipment is presented in relation to the requirements of a particular isolated region and in a basis for application to other similar areas. The problems found during the establishment of this system and their solution can be valuable as a guide for other… (More)
Significant improvements can be made in signal:noise ratios of transient signals arising in atomic-absorption spectroscopy by the use of resistor-capacitor damping. A suitable device is described and the effect it has on signals arising from instruments using analogue and digital forms of output is demonstrated.
A method is described for the quantitative determination of hydrated calcium sulphates in cement by use of self-generating atmosphere thermogravimetry. The method is rapid and precise and can be applied (with a suitably modified sample container) with most thermogravimetric equipment.

The question is not the legal right to order a drug for a patient, but the entitlement of patients to a Government health scheme benefit for the dentist's prescription.
