The high prevalence of denture stomatitis caused by the use of dentures may influence the stability of oral candida. Assess the effects of two types of denture base material roughness on the attachment of Candida albicans. Performed roughness tests with a roughness tester and immersed dyed specimens into Eppendorf tubes containing a modified suspension of C. albicans incubated for 24 and 72 hours. The data were analyzed with a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) post-hoc test and bivariate correlation (Pearson). The amount of C. albicans colonization on the surface of the denture base decreased when polished compared to not polished. There were differences in the number of C. albicans colonies followed by a long incubation time. The number of colony forming units of C. albicans was influenced by a smoother surface of the denture base.
