I'll start off with " Cyst Incisor".

(It isn't, but it might prompt some more ideas!)

Lost incisors? The two top central ones seem most susceptible to being bashed out in sporting accidents etc.

Maybe?

Can you post the link to the ofiginal to see if it's any clearer?

Many thanks for the replies folks, I have to admit I'd not thought of incisors... I couldn't get past the last word being cavity. The original can be found here page 22. Can we safely say this man didn't have dentures when his teeth were checked on enlisment?

I've cropped and enlarged the words and it now looks to me as if it may read "treat in ..... " - but I'm still not at all certain.

Hmm. The original isn't any better is it. Surprising for an antipodean record.

just found a better image on page 12

Thanks for the continued input folks, I can certainly see the word ‘treat’. I need to go back to his records and see if anything further is noted regarding his teeth.
