Behaviors and hygiene habits of complete denture wearers.
TLDR
It was concluded that the patients interviewed had limited knowledge about prosthetic hygiene and oral care, the method more used by patients was the mechanical method of brushing, most patients used the same complete dentures for more than 5 years and slept with the dentures. Expand
Effect of different cleansers on the surface of removable partial denture.
TLDR
It is concluded that the NaOCl and MI may not be suitable for cleaning of RPD, because the two solutions promoted the oxidation of the surfaces, thus leading to spot corrosion. Expand
In vitro and clinical evaluation of specific dentifrices for complete denture hygiene.
TLDR
It can be concluded that brushing complete dentures with the experimental dentifrices tested could be effective for the removal of denture biofilm. Expand
Effect of the physical properties of acrylic resin of overnight immersion in sodium hypochlorite solution.
TLDR
It was concluded that immersion in 1% sodium hypochlorite solutions for 8 h does influence the colour stability and flexural strength of microwave-polymerised acrylic resin, during the simulated period of 180 days use. Expand
Effect of chlorhexidine on denture biofilm accumulation.
TLDR
Both chlorhexidine-based treatments had a similar ability to remove denture biofilm and Immersion in 0.12% or 2.0% chlor hexidine solutions can be used as an auxiliary method for cleaning complete dentures. Expand
The effectiveness of chemical denture cleansers and ultrasonic device in biofilm removal from complete dentures
TLDR
The experimental methods were equally effective regarding the ability to remove biofilm and were superior to the control method (brushing with water). Expand
Effect of three methods for cleaning dentures on biofilms formed in vitro on acrylic resin.
TLDR
The three denture hygiene methods showed different effects depending on the type of microbial biofilms formed on acrylic base resin specimens, including chemical, mechanical, and combination methods. Expand
Effervescent tablets and ultrasonic devices against Candida and mutans streptococci in denture biofilm.
TLDR
The effervescent tablets significantly reduced mutans streptococci and total aerobes from denture biofilm and ultrasound presented a discrete antimicrobial effect and was less effective than the tablets for complete denture disinfection. Expand
Assessment of flexural strength and color alteration of heat-polymerized acrylic resins after simulated use of denture cleansers.
TLDR
The findings of this study showed that chemical denture cleansers used according to the manufacturers' specifications did not cause flexural strength alterations or color changes in heat-polymerized acrylic resins submitted to soaking cycles that simulated 30 days of use. Expand
Effect of ageing and immersion in different beverages on properties of denture lining materials
TLDR
Three variation factors promoted alteration on hardness and color of the tested denture lining materials: thermal cycling, thermal cycling and immersion in beverages that can cause staining of teeth. Expand
