A systematic review of the clinical and radiographic features of hybrid central giant cell granuloma lesions of the jaws.
CONCLUSION: The radiographic features of hybrid-CGCG lesions vary according to the concurrent bony lesion. Hybrid-CGCG lesions altered the radiographic appearance with the following entities: fibrous dysplasia, melorheostosis, and Paget's disease. Optimal imaging modalities are crucial to detail radiographic features and direct representative biopsy of suspicious sites that may host a CGCG hybridisation.

Influences of behaviour and attitude on education related inequality in tooth loss: findings from Norway and Sweden over 5 years of follow- up.
Conclusion: Education related inequality in tooth loss was stronger in the Norwegian than in the Swedish cohort across the survey years. Oral behaviours and attitudinal beliefs played a role in explaining the gradients across time. This illustrates a necessity to promote oral health enhancing behaviours and attitudinal beliefs, particularly so in lower educational groups.

Translation and validation of the English-language instrument Orthognathic Quality of Life Questionair into Swedish.
Abstract Introduction: In orthognathic surgery, understanding the patient's motives for treatment is a key factor for postoperative patient satisfaction and treatment success. In countries/systems where orthognathic surgery is funded by public means, patients are referred mainly due to functional problems, although studies of quality of life related changes after treatment indicate that psychosocial and aesthetic reasons might be equal or more important for the patient. There is no available validated condition specific instruments in the Swedish language for quality of life evaluation of patients with dentofacial...
