- Microorganisms reduction [ Time Frame: Baseline, 30, 60 and 90 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Quantitative analysis of total microorganisms and Candida spp. Samples for culture were collected from dentures and saliva.
- Changes in base acrylic resin [ Time Frame: Baseline, 30, 60 and 90 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Color stability and surface roughness evaluation
- Patients' satisfaction with the denture cleaning protocol [ Time Frame: 30, 60 and 90 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Other: Sodium hypochlorite immersion
Considering that it is necessary to stipulate a simple and effective routine protocol for denture cleaning the aim of this study was to evaluate, in vivo, the efficacy of 0.5% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) as a denture cleanser and its effect on color stability and surface roughness of complete dentures. The patients' satisfaction with the denture cleaning method was also assessed.
