Özet

Objectives. - Fungal infection resulting from Candida adherence on material surface is one of Maxillofacial silicone the most important medical risks for maxillofacial prosthesis wearers. Despite wide usage, there prosthesis is a sparse data evaluating C. albicans adherence on various commercial maxillofacial silicone materials that have different surface contact angles. The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between surface contact angle and fungal adherence on widely used maxillofacial silicone materials.
