Some observations on dental conditions in Papua--New Guinea, 1947, with special reference to dental caries



Some observations on dental conditions in Papua--New Guinea, 1947, with special reference to dental caries



Dental Journal of Australia 22(2): 58-93



The dental condition of 350 natives from 3 villages in Papua-New Guinea was examined. The width of the maxillary arches of the subjects approximated closely to the ideal proportions and their shape was, most frequently, that in which both the anterior and posterior segments are rounded. All natives over 30 years of age showed attrition of the occlusal surfaces of the teeth; this did not prevent periodontitis, but often prevented caries.
