Efficacy of Denture Cleansing Agents in an In Vitro Bacteria-Yeast Colonization Model

PMID: 1524643

Both Efferdent and Super-Strength Polident were able to substantially reduce or eliminate colonizing S mutans. In sharp contrast, however, no significant decreases in adherent C albicans were observed with either denture soaking agent.
