Abstract
The aim of the present 5-year follow-up was to clarify the nature of occlusal support status and radiographic changes in condyles of the elderly, and the association between these two variables.
The present study is part of a comprehensive medical survey of a random sample born in 1904, 1909, and 1914. A total of 364 subjects living in Helsinki participated in the dental part of the examination during 1990 to 1991, and after 5 years a total of 103 were reexamined. Comprehensive data on occlusal support status were available for 94 subjects, and radiographic data were available for 88 subjects. Occlusal support status was assessed on the basis of the Eichner index, radiographic changes were assessed from panoramic radiographs, and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders were assessed using Helkimo's anamnestic index.
The most frequent radiographic finding in the mandibular joint was flattening of the articular surface of the condyle associated with osteoarthrosis, found at baseline in 17% and during follow-up in 13% of the subjects. During the 5-year follow-up, Eichner index for natural dentition remained unaltered in 94% of the subjects and in 85% of the subjects when removable dentures were included. There were no radiographic changes in 92% of the cases. No differences based on age or gender were found. A logistic regression model revealed associations between the selected baseline factors. The odds ratio for baseline Helkimo's anamnestic index was 4.1, 5.7 for Eichner index with the support of removable dentures, and 356 for radiographic findings.
Radiographic changes in condyles of elderly people were small during the 5-year follow-up, but baseline radiographic findings, Helkimo's anamnestic index, and Eichner index with removable dentures were risk factors for radiographic findings at the end of the follow-up.

Abstract
Three hermetics are assessed: chemically hardened Delton, light-hardened Estiseal, and composite Evikrol. The study was carried out in 126 children aged 6 years. The decrease of the increment of dental caries depends on the retention of hermetics on the occlusion surface of the teeth, and the efficacy of caries prevention in permanent teeth is much higher if hermetic sealing of fissures and fossae is combined with local fluorine prophylaxis and oral hygiene. All types of hermetics can be used to prevent permanent teeth caries, but chemically hardened ones should be preferred.

Abstract
Previous reports indicated that dentists resorted often to general anesthesia (GA) to treat deciduous teeth of young kids. These children, at an older age, demonstrated a high level of untreated cavities for their permanent dentition. In 1991, we examined the current situation for the young population of Aupaluk and Kangirsuk. We found that the proportion of kids treated under GA at an early age was 67, 70, and 54% for groups of 2-5, 6-11, and 12-18 years old respectively. The percentage of various permanent teeth treated (F/DMFT) was, on average, 74% for the 6-11 group and 61% for the 12-18 group. An important difference was found between the two communities; the F/DMFT was 82% in AupaIuk compared to 52% in Kangirsuk for the 12-18 group. Demographic reasons may explain this discrepancy. On average, Inuit youngsters had lost one tooth at 13 years old, two at 16, and seven at 18. Prior to 1992, much energy and time was spent on treatment of the primary dentition under GA. Meanwhile, Inuit young adults were losing several permanent teeth. Even if the treatment level has considerably improved lately, much is left to be done. Because of limited resources, curative efforts in the next years should be directed at the adult dentition of schoolchildren rather than the primary teeth of preschoolers. To support this objective, school collaboration is essential.

Abstract
The purpose of the investigation was to determine the prevalence of occlusal anomalies in relation to dental stages (DS) in Icelandic schoolchildren, and to compare it with results from other Scandinavian countries and Ireland found on the basis of the same method. The material consisted of 1,641 randomly selected children, 791 boys and 850 girls, corresponding to 9.5% of the total primary and secondary school population of Reykjavík. A significant sex difference was only recorded in the frequencies of of two of the single morphologic traits of occlusal anomalies, the boys showing higher frequencies in deep bite and in scissors-bite. Significant differences in the occurrence of occlusal anomalies in Iceland and Denmark were only found in two out of 108 pairs of frequencies.
