Abstract

The antifungal activity of trial denture cleansers prepared with berberine hydro-chloride was examined against Candida albicans, C. tropicalis, and C. glabrata. A commercial denture cleanser and a trial denture cleanser that exhibited strong antifungal activity were tested for their effects on Candida spp., the color stability of the dental material, and the surface roughness of acrylic resin plates. The results of these tests revealed that the trial denture cleanser removed 64% to 89% of adhered cells from acrylic resin surfaces and had little effect on the other physical properties tested.
