Relation between facial fractures and socioeconomic deprivation in the north east of England
Patients with a low socioeconomic status suffer disproportionately from trauma, and have a high incidence of mandibular fractures. To explore how deprivation affects the incidence of facial fractures in the north east of England, we reviewed 1096 patients who were admitted to the oral and maxillofacial surgical (OMFS) unit at Sunderland Royal Hospital for treatment of a facial fracture between December 2013 and December 2017. Levels of socioeconomic deprivation, which were obtained from postcodes...

Supernumerary teeth exist throughout the dental arch and are more common in the maxilla than in the mandible.1,2 Impacted supernumerary teeth are usually extracted before orthodontic treatment,3,4 but it is difficult to remove those in the mandible that are located low on the lingual side.

Chronic osteomyelitis induced by the placement of dental implants on cemento-osseous dysplasia
Cemento-osseous dysplasia is a well-known condition in which healthy bone becomes sclerotic. Hypovascularity of the lesion (caused by cementum-like deposits) increases the risk of secondary infection and osteomyelitis, which can also be induced by the placement of implants.

Adult Comorbidity Evaluation-27 as a predictor of postoperative complications, two-year mortality, duration of hospital stay, and readmission within 30 days in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck
The Adult Comorbidity Evaluation (ACE)-27 is a validated scoring system for comorbid conditions. We have evaluated the correlation between it and the duration of hospital stay, readmission within 30 days, complications, and two-year survival in patients having primary surgical treatment for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck. We studied patients with SCC who had selective neck dissection, resection of the tumour, and reconstruction between 2007 and 2013. Patients who had palliative...

Severity and Outcome Assessment score: a useful tool for auditing orthognathic surgery
Many indices and scoring systems exist for assessing skeletal patterns and malocclusion but none have been universally adopted by teams providing orthognathic surgery in the UK. Using a standardised objective measure of a patient 's condition is important both for service provision, treatment allocation, and other clinical governance domains. The Severity and Outcome Assessment tool (SOA) developed by the British Orthodontic Society (BOS) and British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons...

Social impact of cleft lip repair on married adults: an uncommon finding from a semi-urban African settlement
An orofacial cleft may have an appreciable psychosocial impact on patients that could affect their social lives, including the choice of who they marry. We retrospectively reviewed the impact of repair of cleft lip on marriage in adult patients in our institution by questioning a group of patients treated from July 2009-June 2017. There were 120 adult patients who had cleft lips repaired, of whom 17 (14%) patients changed their marital status. The mean (SD) ages of the 17 were 32 (1), range 20 –41,...
