Effect of sodium bicarbonate on Candida albicans adherence to thermally activated acrylic resin

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of 5% sodium bicarbonate on the adherence of Candida albicans to thermally activated acrylic resin. Fifty 4 mm² specimens of acrylic resin were obtained using a metallic matrix. The specimens received chemical polishing, were sterilized and then immersed in Sabouraud broth, inoculated with Candida albicans standardized suspension. After 24 hours of incubation at 37°C, the specimens were divided into four groups according to the substance used for disinfectio… Show more
