this infection is caused by Candida albicans a flora of mouth. Since one of the problems in denture

users is it's contamination with C.albicans and discoloration, and lack of information about adhesion

of C.albicans to different resins, we designed this study to compare the effect of two types of acrylic

resin on adhesion of C.albicans.

Candidiasis is one of the most common fungal infections in oral cavity. About 85% of


resin were added in tubes containing suspension of 1×10

incubated at 37

sterile saline and after resuspension by shaking a known quantity of each was inoculated on sabouraud

dextrose agar and incubated at 37

were analyzed by Mann-u- Whitney test.

This was an experimental study within that 36 samples from Bayer and Acropars acrylic6 (CFU/ml ) of C.albicans. Then tubes wereοc for 40 and 120 minutes. After incubation, the samples were transferred in 1ml ofοc for 48 hours and after that, formed colonies were counted and



any significant differences from the point of adhesion in to different lengths of times. But dissimilarly

was significant for Acropars acrylic resin which indicated adhesion with the passage of the time.


These two acrylic resins did not reveal statistical significant differences in two 40οc andοc different lengths of the time from the point of adhesion. Also Bayer acrylic resin did not show


non-adhesion to Candida albicans, but Bayer acryl is more appropriate particularly for those who are

with weak hygiene and are more susceptible to fungal infections. Surface roughness of acrylic resins

and their components, characteristic and surface factors have essential role in adhesion of C.albicans.

These two Acrylic resins do not have any priority to each other from the view point of
