BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is very prevalent among the elderly. Insulin therapy is often required for glycemic control. The association of starting this therapy with depressive symptoms as well the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is unknown among the elderly patients. AIMS Evaluate the association of starting insulin therapy(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of different application frequencies of dentifrices containing CPP-ACP and fluoride on enamel demineralization inhibition using a pH cycling model. METHODS A total of 120 enamel blocks obtained from permanent human third molars were divided into eight groups according to the treatment and number of times that the dentifrice(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of CPP-ACPF paste and fluoride toothpastes on enamel subjected to erosion and erosion plus abrasion in vitro. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 220 human enamel blocks were divided into eleven groups (n = 20): CPP-ACPF paste (MPP), potassium nitrate/sodium fluoride toothpaste (PE), sodium fluoride toothpaste (FD),(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of resin infiltration in preventing in vitro lesion progression. MATERIALS AND METHODS Buccal surfaces of bovine incisors were divided into mesial and distal regions and, at the center, nail varnish was applied (1.0 mm width) to protect the enamel surface against any further treatment. In(More)
AIM The aim of this in vitro study was to observe and compare the microstructure of the adhesive interface between resin and dentin treated with Papacarie® using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). MATERIALS AND METHODS Totally, 10 human dentin slabs were randomly distributed into two groups. The control group (n = 5) was subjected to etching with 37%(More)
This in situ study evaluated the influence of the bonding agent on demineralization of acid-etched human enamel. Enamel blocks obtained from 20 human molars (four blocks per tooth) were divided into five groups. For the control groups, healthy control (HC, no treatment) and acid-etched control (EC, etching with 35 per cent phosphoric acid for 20 seconds),(More)
