Share Abstract:

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


Pages: 214-220
PMID: 1524643

The purpose of this investigation was to develop a new, in vitro bacteria-yeast denture colonization model. Candida albicans and Streptococcus mutans, organisms associated with denture stomatitis, reproducibly colonized denture blanks in high numbers. 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.
