Abstract

Degradation of oral health is often assumed to progress with aging. However, significantly higher total counts and greater varieties of Candida species can be detected in wearers of removable dentures compared with non non-denture wearers. Denture wearing constitutes a stable factor that can affect oral health status. Its impact is almost unaffected by aging. This should be taken into account when making predictions and assessments concerning oral health management for middle-aged and elderly subjects.
