OBJECTIVE The aim of this single - blind, multicenter, parallel, randomized controlled trial was to evaluate the effectiveness of the application of a high-fluoride toothpaste on root caries in adults. METHODS Adult patients (n = 130, ♂ = 74, ♀ = 56; mean age ± SD: 56.9 ± 12.9) from three participating centers, diagnosed with root caries, were randomly(More)
Palatal augmentation prostheses are commonly used in the treatment for dysphagia. By lowering the palatal contours, the tongue contact is increased and thus the bolus propulsion facilitated. However, the unfavourable weight of such appliances may be avoided when using lingual plates. Hence, the aim of this study is to investigate the effect of two different(More)
PURPOSE The study aimed to investigate the personality judgments made by observers of elderly individuals with different dental appearances. MATERIALS AND METHODS A random sample of 120 elderly (57 men, 63 women; third age: n = 51, mean age: 68.6 ± 5.0 years; fourth age: n = 69, mean age: 85.8 ± 3.0 years) and 120 young (54 men, 66 women; mean age: 24.9 ±(More)
Although palatal augmentation prostheses (PAPs) can improve dysphagia, their application is compromised in the absence of maxillary abutment teeth. Experimental lingual plates (ELPs) used for raising the tongue may be employed as alternative to PAPs. Influence of different ELP designs, plateau (P–type) and drop-shaped (D–type), on the intra–oral pressure(More)
