Prevention of inflammation, denture stomatitis and improvement of oral hygiene status can be achieved by adding silver nanoparticles in PMMA. Ag metal has a strong influence on antimicrobial property. This article mainly focuses on the PMMA denture impregnated with Ag nanoparticles that has a greater efficiency to prevent candidiasis growth in denture than the normal PMMA denture, thereby improve the status of oral hygiene. Ag nanoparticles are chemically been reduced to 1µm in size and combined with PMMA. Field emission scanning electron microscope and atomic absorption spectroscopy was used to incorporated nano particles in PMMA .Fluorescence activated cell sorting and thermal gravimetric analyses are used to test antifungal effect. Successfully incorporated Ag Nano Particles has a greater anti adherent effect against candida albicans. Control of fungal colonization and reduction of biofilm formation is highly seen in Ag incorporated PMMA than the unmodified PMMA.

Keywords : Silver Nanoparticles; Candida Albicans; Denture Stomatitis.
