Denture stomatitis is a primarily oral disease that affects denture wearers. The presence of Candida albicans in the palatal mucosa, on the internal surface of the maxillary denture, and in the blood of patients with denture stomatitis was evaluated. Although the results did not show C albicans in the bloodstream of patients, a strong relationship between denture stomatitis and Candida sp was confirmed for both the palatal mucosa and maxillary denture.
