Most removable dental appliances (dentures) are made from porous materials in which opportunistic and pathogenic micro organisms (funghi, bacteria and viruses) infiltrate, attach and form bio-film, a 3-dimensional protective matrix in which they build up. Especially, candida albicans penetrates deeply the pores and cracks of the dental appliance. But also other pathological micro-organisms such as pseudomanas aeruginosa, St mutans, St aureus (inc MRSA) and herpes simplex can attach and colonise the appliance which leads to painful irritation of then oral cavity (dental stomatitis).
Elderly, diabetic and cancer therapy patients wearing contaminated applliances can develop serious systemic infection of the upper airways. For example oropharyngeal cadidiasis is observed in 75% of denture wearing patients in nursing homes. Also the lungs, heart and kidneys can become infected which in some cases may lead to organ failure.
