Effects of Candida Treatment Regimens on the Physical Properties of Denture Resins


PMID: 7802917

Denture stomatitis affects approximately 65% of all denture wearers and Candida albicans has been established as a primary etiologic agent. Treatment of the condition necessitates removal of the organism from denture resins by soaking in cleansing/disinfecting solutions. These solutions can have deleterious effects on denture resins. Physical properties (flexure strength and surface hardness) of heat- and light-polymerized denture resins (Lucitone Pink and Triad) were evaluated after candidal colonization and candidal treatment regimens. Light-activated resins may be the materials of choice for patients prone to denture stomatitis, as they have demonstrated less overall degradation from candidal treatment modalities.
