1. Webb, Bettine Constance. Laboratory and clinical studies on the treatment of candida-associated denture stomatitis with sodium hypochlorite or microwave irradiation .

Degree: 1996, University of Sydney

This thesis describes experiments which were carried out at the Institute of Dental Research in Sydney and within the Department of Prosthetic Dentistry at the United Dental Hospital of Sydney between February 1991 and May 1996. The study is concerned with finding practical means of treating chronic atrophic candidosis, also referred to as Candida-associated denture stomatitis and to this purpose two methods of denture disinfection are investigated, namely, sodium hypoclorite denture soak and microwave irradiation. Although the aetiology of denture stomatitis is generally considered to be multifactorial, there is sufficient evidence that Candida species and in particular C. albicans play an important role in the aetiology of the condition. In Chapter 1, therefore, the literature review, which provides relevant background information for the experiments to be described in later chapters, is primarily concerned with Candida species. The characteristics and distribution of Candida species are described and factors affecting the distribution of or Candida are discussed. The literature relating to the cause of chronic atrophic candidosis is vast and consequently a detailed description is given of Candida-associated denture stomatitis in the section concerned with oral diseases caused by Candida and their treatment. Each of the subsequent chapters, contains a brief literature review of material relevant to the subject of the particular chapter. Chapter 2 describes laboratory work to assess the effect of sodium hypochlorite on the adhesion of Candida species to oral surfaces and the ability of Candida to coaggregate with oral streptococci. The results showed that sodium hypochlorite decreased the ability of Candida species to adhere to both inert surfaces and BECs. However, coaggregation of Candida with streptococci was increased. Thus, hypochlorite if used as a denture soak may initially reduce the ability of Candida species to adhere to the denture surface and may therefore assist the treatment of denture stomatitis. The effects of hypochlorite on the characteristics of Candida species that are associated with tissue invasion are described in Chapter 3. The production of acid proteinase, the formation of germ tubes and presence of major cell wall proteins at 43 and 27 kDa are demonstrated. The ability of the whole cells of certain species of Candida to aggregate human platelets was assessed. The results showed that sodium hypochlorite did not affect proteinase production by Candida species but the rate of germ tube formation and the production of Candida cell wall proteins were increased. Hypochlorite did not affect the ability of certain Candida species to aggregate human platelets. Mechanisms to defend the host against candidal invasion are discussed and include platelet aggregation where aggregated platelets release antimicrobial factors that are active against Candida. Chapter 4 describes an in vitro study to test the effects of sodium hypochlorite and microwave irradiation on the survival of Candida species and oral…
