Results of the study indicated that people with a nice smile are perceived to have more desirable qualities than those with smile problems, including attributes such as being happy, surrounded by loved ones, and professionally successful."Whether we like it or not, we are often judged by our appearance," said Dr.o Nice Smile = Success: When looking at images, those with a nice smile are perceived to be 45% more likely than those with an unattractive smile to get a job when competing with someone who has a similar skill set and experience.They are also seen as 58% more likely to be successful, as well as 58% more likely to be wealthy.Background and Objectives: In complete denture wearers, the accumulation of food in the buccal vestibule is one of the factors causing discomfort to the patient.This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of mandibular denture buccal flange on food retention and to correlate between varying angulations of buccal flange of mandibular denture on food retention.
The numbers of residual test particles in the buccal vestibule were counted after 30s.
A new study of more than 2,800 denture and partial denture wearers in six countries has found that more than ten different types of cleaning methods are used instead of specialist denture cleansers - including toothpaste, household bleach, dishwashing detergent and vinegar- even though they often don't kill key bacterial and fungal microorganisms and some can damage denture materials.
The findings were announced at a symposium at the IADR General Session in Cape Town, sponsored by GSK Consumer Healthcare.
Materials and Methods: Complete dentures were fabricated and the mandibular complete denture was duplicated.
The existing (unduplicated) manually molded and physiologically molded dentures were tested for food retention.
