As seen from table 1 and graph 1, group the control (n=10) consisting of denture base acrylic specimens immersed in distilled water (10x10x2 mm), The mean colony count of candida on denture base acrylic specimens after immersion in Group A (hydrogen peroxide denture cleansers) ranged from a maximum of 70.50 before immersion, to a minimum of 50 after immersion into denture cleanser,.
In addition, the adhesive strength of denture teeth to the lightcuring denture base is less than that of heat-curing denture base resins [22].
However, one of the severe problems with resilient denture liners is bond failure between liner and denture base leading to microleakage, which in turn may promote bacterial growth, plaque, and calculus formation.
