Abstract
The purpose of the present study was to establish whether the number of intact teeth in Helsinki schoolchildren aged 7-13 years was rationally correlated with the wartime reduction in sugar consumption and, later, with dental health education programs in Finland. The period covered is 44 years. The results show that dental health education is effective in caries prevention and that enforced programs can lead to an improvement similar to that seen during the war.

Abstract
In 1990, as part of a major health status assessment, a dental survey was carried out on a 20 per cent random sample of the adult population in the Keewatin region of the Northwest Territories. A 73 per cent response rate was obtained. Of the 397 people examined, 334 (88 per cent) identified themselves as Inuit. More than 20 per cent of the respondents were edentulous, including 10 per cent of those 18 to 34 years old. The median DMFT was 24 for all respondents and 21 for dentulous respondents. There was a significant difference between Inuit and non-Inuit respondents, which was most marked in the 18 to 34 year old age group (mean DMFT 22.1 versus 15.6, p

Abstract
For a comparative study of root caries, 502 adult lifelong residents of a naturally fluoridated community (1.6 ppm F) and 465 such residents of a nearby, comparable nonfluoridated community (0.2 ppm F) were examined. Substantially fewer carious lesions were found among adults in the fluoridated community relative to the nonfluoridated community. This was observed in virtually all age- and gender-specific groups. Given a cross-sectional design and considering only exposed root surfaces, root caries was related to age. In addition, the data from this study show that the number of root caries lesions is underestimated but that root caries prevalence is overestimated by the standard Root Caries Index (RCI). A less restrictive form of the RCI may lead to more valid estimation of root caries prevalence.

Abstract
To analyze the regular dental care behavior and prevalence of edentulism in adult Danes, reported in sequential cross-sectional oral health surveys by the application of a marginal approach to consider the possible clustering effect of birth cohorts.
Data from four sequential cross-sectional surveys of non-institutionalized Danes conducted from 1975-2005 comprising 4330 respondents aged 15+ years in 9 birth cohorts were analyzed. The key study variables were seeking dental care on an annual basis (ADC) and edentulism. For the analysis of ADC, survey year, age, gender, socio-economic status (SES) group, denture-wearing, and school dental care (SDC) during childhood were considered. For the analysis of edentulism, only respondents aged 35+ years were included. Survey year, age, gender, SES group, ADC, and SDC during childhood were considered as the independent factors. To take into account the clustering effect of birth cohorts, marginal logistic regressions with an independent correlation structure in generalized estimating equations (GEE) were carried out, with PROC GENMOD in SAS software.
The overall proportion of people seeking ADC increased from 58.8% in 1975 to 86.7% in 2005, while for respondents aged 35 years or older, the overall prevalence of edentulism (35+ years) decreased from 36.4% in 1975 to 5.0% in 2005. Females, respondents in the higher SES group, in more recent survey years, with no denture, and receiving SDC in all grades during childhood were associated with higher probability of seeking ADC regularly (P

Abstract
Within the framework of a longitudinal population study of age retirement in women, the short-term consequences of retirement were studied in 116 municipally employed women in the city of Malmö (230,000 inhabitants) in southern Sweden half a year before and half a year after retirement. The women represented about 40 different occupations, mostly within the sectors of health care, social services and administration. The study comprised four main parts, namely health and discomfort, social psychology, dietary habits and body composition, and oral health. The present paper concerns a general presentation of the study including sampling procedures and analyses of non-response. The response rate was a little more than 70%. Only a few significant differences were observed between non-responders and responders, such as more working hours per week, and more frequently a negative attitude towards retirement in the non-responders after retirement. This longitudinal prospective study of the same cohort of women has so far shown that the general design, sampling procedure and general methods of data collection appear adequate and feasible. In general, the study population was representative of women about to retire from municipal employment in Sweden. Results from the different studies will be presented elsewhere. To illustrate not only the short-term effects of retirement we intend to reexamine the same women about 2 years after the retirement.

Abstract
This study presents data from clinical, roentgenological and interview examinations of 116 women at the age of retirement from work. The study was part of a comprehensive investigation including general health, health behaviour and psychological status. The women were examined 5 months before and 5 months after retirement. Oral status as well as dental health behaviour was recorded. Forty per cent had been treated with removable dentures of different types; 14 women were edentulous in both jaws. The dentate women had on an average 19.8 teeth, of which 83% were either filled or decayed. Eighty-one per cent claimed that they visited a dentist regularly and about 80% actually did so during the observation period. A majority of these were included in a recall system. Almost 1/3 experienced oral dryness, occasionally or constantly. Oral dryness was combined with a somewhat higher frequency of decayed surfaces. About 22% considered themselves to have, from a dental point of view, improved their eating habits after retirement. The study shows no evidence of decline in oral health behaviour after retirement.
