Problems With Dentures
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.
