The New Zealand Dental Services

Dental Condition of Territorial Force

Dental Condition of Territorial Force

Number examined 11,215
Number requiring treatment 9,322 (83·12 per cent)
Artificial dentures required 1,780 (19·09 per cent)
Fillings required per man 5·04
Extractions required per man 1·26

A comparison of these two sets of figures points to the younger age of the Territorial group, in which fewer wearers of artificial dentures would be found, and consequently fewer fit mouths on examination with more filling work needed to achieve dental fitness.
