The purpose of this study is to evaluate the antiplaque effects of an alcohol-free essential-oil containing mouthrinse - Listerine Zero (LZ) and an alcohol-based essential oils (EO+) mouth...
The phosphorus content in saliva is increased in chronic kidney disease. We hypothesize that a chewing gum that binds salivary phosphorus would be a novel, effective agent to reduce serum...
The aims of this prospective cross over study was to compare the gastric emptying of 250 ml water in fasting volunteers, in two situations : without chewing gum or while chewing gum during...
We aimed to evaluate chewing function (CF) in children with neuromuscular disorders, and investigate reliability of the Karaduman Chewing Performance Scale (KCPS).
Aim of the study is to evaluate clinically and by non-invasive instrumental evaluations the activity on hair regrowth of a topical cosmetic product versus placebo (comparison within subjec...
Chewing gum containing xylitol may help prevent caries by reducing levels of mutans streptococci (MS) and lactobacilli in saliva and plaque. Very little is known about other species which are possibly...
The aim of this systematic review was to establish in studies with human participants the effect of a regular fluoride dentifrice compared to water or saline on dental plaque inhibition.
Perioperative fasting guidelines differ in their approaches to chewing gum in the preoperative period. Current recommendations range from canceling the surgery to proceeding with it. Given this lack o...
The primary aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the effect of external tooth bleaching products on plaque indices and to compare it to a placebo or a negative control.
Although the echogenicity of carotid plaques on carotid enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) was reported to correlate with the historological density of intra-plaque neovessels, it is unclear whether the intra...
Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.
Chewing gum which contains NICOTINE.
An index which scores the degree of dental plaque accumulation.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
Percutaneous transluminal procedure for removing atheromatous plaque from the coronary arteries. Both directional (for removing focal atheromas) and rotational (for removing concentric atheromatous plaque) atherectomy devices have been used.
