Tissue conditioners are susceptible to colonization by microorganisms. Therefore, the prevention of biofilm formation are important for oral hygiene. However, mechanical and chemical cleaning methods may cause clinical problems such as deformation or surface degradation of tissue conditioners. The objective of this study is to evaluate the antifungal(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to clarify the influence of early setting conditions on the properties of self curing addition silicone resilient denture lining materials. METHODS Four auto-mix types of commercial self curing addition silicone resilient denture lining materials were used. Agar plates containing various concentrations of methyl(More)
The purpose of the present study was to compare the properties required for the clinical application of soft lining materials containing a fluorinated monomer versus that of conventional materials in an effort to develop a new soft lining material with long-term stable viscoelastic properties. Four soft lining materials were examined. Two experimental(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the effect of conventional complete dentures (CD) fabricated using two different impression methods on patient-reported outcomes in a randomized controlled trial (RCT). METHODS A cross-over RCT was performed with edentulous patients, required maxillomandibular CDs. Mandibular CDs were fabricated using two different methods. The(More)
Silica coating modifies hydrophobic denture base materials to have a hydrophilic surface. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of silica coating to a denture base material on resistance to Candida albicans (C. albicans) adherence. Specimens were prepared by polymerizing an acrylic denture lining material and polished using silicon carbide(More)
The purpose of this study was to clarify the effect of the viscosity of alginate impression materials on the results of the preliminary impressions for complete dentures. Five experimental alginate impression materials with different viscosity were prepared based on a conventional material. Fifteen complete denture wearers were selected and impressions on(More)
BACKGROUND For decades, many reports have expressed negative opinions about home reliner (HR), because it may result in residual ridge resorption. Recently, some clinical studies evaluated HR. However, the effect of HR on occlusal relationships and the oral mucosa remains unclear. Here, we dynamically analyzed the situation in which a patient applies HR to(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate methods for evaluating objectively the removability of three commercially available home reliners (Cushion Correct, Tafugurippu Pink A and Liodent Pink). After immersing each of the reliners in distilled water at 37ºC for 24 h, we compared their removability using the peel test with a finger, which was evaluated(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of the composition of experimental fluorinated soft lining materials on bond strength to denture base resin. Vinylidene fluoride/hexafluoro propylene copolymer (2-6F), tridecafluorooctyl methacrylate (13FMA), methoxy diethylene glycol methacrylate (MDGMA), and silica (as filler) were used for(More)
This study aimed to clarify how composition and water immersion of home reliners affect the attenuation of the transmitted load. To conduct a transmitted load measurement, we used three different home reliners (Tafugurippu Pink A, Liodent Pink, and Cushion Correct), which were combined acrylic resin disks. They were immersed in distilled water and then(More)
