dc.description.abstractCandida albicansis a fungus which is often found colonized on the skin and in the mouth of many adults. It is the most frequently isolated human fungal pathogen. Dentures are an ideal location for growth of C. albicans. A possible method of cleaning dentures to prevent infections is through the killing of C. albicanswith microwave irradiation. Microwaves are believed to damage the cell wall of C. albicans eventually leading to lysis and cell death. This study measured the effects of different strengths of microwaves at different concentrations of C. albicans.en
