Candidal adherence to denture acrylic surfaces is implicated as the first step in the pathogenesis of Candida-associated denture stomatitis, the most prevalent form of oral candidosis in the West. This condition is treated by topically administered antifungal agents, mainly belonging to the polyenes and azoles. As the intraoral concentrations of antifungals fluctuate considerably due to the dynamics of the oral environment, the effect of short exposure to sublethal concentrations of antifungals… CONTINUE READING
