OBJECTIVES: To compare the impact of three complete denture palatal rugae designs on participants' satisfaction and oral-health-related quality of life. BACKGROUND: Complete dentures palatal rugea are usually polished to a smooth finish, which can affect the patient's adaptation. Roughening or keeping an opening in the rugae area to replicate the natural sensation of the palatal rugae has been suggested but lacks clinical evidence. METHODS: This randomised crossover trial included participants with complete dentures randomly allocated to six sequences...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to examine oral care utilisation among older Danes and to describe the extent to which oral care use is associated with the co-existence of challenges relating to general health and care dependency. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study used registry data covering the entire population of older adults (≥65 years) in seven municipalities in Denmark (N = 178 787 individuals). Oral care services utilisation was computed from administrative data on oral care contacts up to and including 2019, including both private oral care and a municipal oral care programme (MOCP)...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the touch perception threshold of the alveolar mucosa and quality of life of edentulous patients before (T0) and 30 days after (T1) the insertion of new complete dentures. BACKGROUND: Touch perception is important so that edentulous patients can detect the position of complete dentures in their mouth. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included 32 complete denture wearers with good oral and systemic health and no temporomandibular disorders for at least 5 years...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Tooth loss is common among older adults and can affect dietary intake and weight status. This study investigated associations between dentition status and body mass index (BMI) in older adults. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of data from a convenience sample of older adults (65-89 years) treated at an urban U.S. dental school clinic. Clinical and demographic data were obtained from electronic health records. Dentition status was determined based on data from odontograms...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between mortality and masticatory function in older adults living in long-term care facilities (LTCFs), controlling for demographic and health covariates. BACKGROUND: Poor oral health has been associated with mortality; however, no previous study investigated whether objective and self-reported poor masticatory function is a predictor of early mortality in LTCFs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Baseline characteristics of 295 participants were collected, including age, sex, polypharmacy, mobility, activities of daily living, frailty, nutritional status, and objective (masticatory performance - chewing gum) and self-reported masticatory function...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to explore older patients' oral health status, their opinions about oral health care and their experiences with oral health care while in hospital. BACKGROUND: Improving older adults' oral health is considered an urgent priority at both the national and international levels, especially for hospitalised older patients who have been found to have poor oral health. However, a one-size-fits-all standardised approach to oral care delivery may not be the answer...

OBJECTIVE: Examine the literature on the experiences of living with removable dentures (complete or partial) to identify any gaps and provide a map for future research. BACKGROUND: Increasing proportions of society are living partially dentate with some form of restoration, including removable dentures. Previous studies have reported on the location, materials and usage of these prostheses, along with effects on oral-health-related quality of life (OHRQoL). However, less is known about experiences with removable dentures from a patient-centred perspective...

BACKGROUND: Daily toothbrushing is a routine approach for helping to keep the oral cavity healthy. However, using a toothbrush as an ordinary oral hygiene habit can also lead to adverse events. CASE PRESENTATION: A 75-year-old man was referred by a periodontist for vestibular ulcerations with gingival defects. The patient reported no significant medical or social history, which might be associated with his symptoms. On examination, wide labio-buccal gingival defects, white attached gingiva and linear vestibular ulcerations were observed...
