STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Denture liners are well known for their poor physical properties that favor the accumulation of plaque and colonization by Candida species, which can irritate the oral tissues and lead to denture stomatitis. PURPOSE A systematic review was conducted to determine the feasibility of a prevention protocol for Candida colonization in(More)
BACKGROUND Soft denture lining-materials are more susceptible to microbial adhesion than hard denture base acrylic resin. Poor oral hygiene and Candida albicans infection are common among elderly denture wearers as these patients usually have difficulty in keeping them clean. PURPOSE To evaluate the influence of the oral hygiene methods on the formation(More)
OBJECTIVES This randomised clinical trial assessed how biofilm development and composition is affected by time and denture material type in denture wearers with and without denture stomatitis. METHODS Specimens of acrylic resin (control) and denture liners (silicone-based or acrylic resin based, depending on the experimental phase) were inserted into the(More)
The socio-economic and psychological factors and the use of and need for dental prostheses have been associated with prevalence and severity of temporomandibular disorders (TMD). The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of socio-economic and psychological factors, use of and need for dental prostheses with the prevalence and severity of signs(More)
In this study, the dual- and self-curing potential of self-adhesive resin cements (SARCs) as thin, clinically-relevant cement films was investigated. The SARCs tested were: BisCem (BSC; Bisco), Maxcem Elite (MXE; Kerr), RelyX Unicem clicker (UNI; 3M ESPE), seT capsule (SET; SDI), and SmartCem 2 (SC2; Dentsply Caulk). The conventional cement RelyX ARC (3M(More)
The preservation of teeth to support an attachment-retained overdenture is an appropriate and stable alternative to extractions and complete dentures. A key to success is the strategic selection of teeth for retention. This clinical report discusses a method for fabricating an overdenture based on a combination of direct and indirect impression techniques.(More)
OBJECTIVES This in vivo study evaluated the influence of controlled diabetes on biofilm formation on a soft denture liner in elderly patients. BACKGROUND Soft denture lining materials are more susceptible to microbial colonisation than denture base acrylic resins. Especially in the elderly, several predisposing factors may accumulate leading to an(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate if the use of a varnish on a tissue conditioner would affect biofilm adhesion. BACKGROUND After the surgery has been performed, before the delivery of a complete denture, it is often necessary to use materials such as tissue conditioners on the surgical wound. However, these materials present deficient(More)
OBJECTIVE This randomized controlled trial compared the survival of glass fibre and cast metal dental posts used to restore endodontically treated teeth with no remaining coronal wall. METHODS Fifty-four participants (45 women) and 72 teeth were evaluated during a follow-up period of up to 3 years. Teeth were randomly allocated to the glass-fibre and(More)
BACKGROUND Complete tooth loss among the elderly is still frequent in developing countries and the incidence of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) is a common finding in complete denture wearers. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in a population of complete denture wearers. MATERIALS AND(More)
