Abstract: Objective Results All samples proved to be contaminated after the incubation period. After the different processes of disinfection, both immersion in 0.2% peracetic acid as microwave irradiation were effective in disinfection of the 3 types of acrylic resins contaminated by Candida Albicans. ConclusionConcluded that soaking in 0,2% peracetic acid for 5 minutes with microwave irradiation power 840W for 1 minute are effective methods for disinfecting heat-cured acrylic resin, self-cured acrylic resin and microwa… Show more

“…Also, all of the groups fulfilled the requirements regarding water sorption (<32 mg/mm 3 ), water solubility (<1.6 mg/mm 3 ), flexural strength (>65 MPa), and flexural modulus (>2500 MPa), according to ISO 1567 [27] . The use of microwave irradiation exposure at high power during 1 minute was shown to be effective as a disinfection method for dentures with Candida albicans biofilm [17,18] , and three microwave irradiation cycles (850 W/1 minute) were shown to completely sterilize the denture surface [7] . Previous studies have shown contradictory results about the effects of disinfection by microwave irradiation on properties of the acrylic resins.…”

“…The low concentration and the immersion time of only 5 minutes used in this study could explain the findings. Hence, the use of higher concentration or immersion time seems to be not justified, as the immersion in 0.2% peracetic acid-based disinfectant for 5 minutes has been found to be effective against Candida albicans [17] .…”
