Silicone rubber, which is a widely used biomaterial, is often used to make soft liners for permanent denture. Colonization of denture soft lining materials by Candida albicans can result in clinical problems. The aim of this study was to chemically modify the surface of an experimental silicone rubber in order to produce a silicone that was less susceptible to candidal colonization. Surface modification was carried out with the use of argon-plasma bombardment followed by silane treatment, which… CONTINUE READING
