Abstract

The effects of hydrophobicities of substrate surfaces on microbial adherence were examined by using Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis and 21 denture base resin materials. With increasing surface free energy of resin plates, increasing adherence of C. albicans and decreasing adherence of C. tropicalis were observed. The surface free energy of C. albicans is higher than that of all resin material surfaces, and C. tropicalis has surface free energy lower than that of all materials used. In calculation of the changes of free energy accompanying the adherence, the higher adherence tendency was accompanied by a lower value for the free energy change in both species. Fron a different standpoint, the closer the surface free energy of the substrate surface and the microorganism, the higher was the probability of adherence.
