    Author(s): Mohmmed R, Karama T Al-Taee* and Anas Hammad Abed

    Aim: The aim of this study was to compare between three different types of denture base material heat cure acrylic resin (conventional acrylic), flexible acrylic and compact acrylic (acrylic block) according to the ability of their surfaces for bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation to know their susceptibility for contamination during dentures placement. Materials and Methods: In our study, we were using two types of bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus epidermidis. That was previously tested for their ability to produce biofilm. To detect and measure the formation of biofilm, Quantitative biofilm assay and Scanning Electron Microscope were used. Results: According to the results of (Quantitative) biofilm assay, the surfaces of the three dental materials showed significant differences in their abil.. Read More»
