Abstract
Gljivične infekcije se učestalo javljaju kod nositelja mobilnih protetskih nadomjestaka, od kojih je najčešći oblik infekcije oralna kandidijaza. Oblik oralne kandidijaze koji se najčešće javlja je protetski stomatitis, odnosno kronična atrofična ili eritematozna kandidijaza. Brojni predisponirajući čimbenici pogoduju nastanku infekcije, a to su mikroporoznost i hrapavost površine akrilata, loša oralna higijena, smanjeno lučenje sline, imunodeficijentna stanja, upotreba antibiotika, dijabetes. Provedeno je istraţivanje na 60 pacijenata nositelja mobilnih protetskih nadomjestaka bez kliničkih znakova upale i dobiveni su rezultati infekcije kod 28,33% pacijenata, kolonizacije kod 41,66% i uredan nalaz kod 30% pacijenata.

Parallel abstract (English)
Fungal infections often occur with complete denture patients in their most common form, candida associated denture stomatitis. Etiological factors include poor denture hygiene, immunodeficient conditions, diabetes mellitus, use of antibiotics and bacterial and yeast contamination of denture surface due to surface roughness of the acrylic material. This research was conducted on 60 complete denture patients without clinical signs of inflammation. Infection results were obtained in 28.33% of patients, colonization with 41.66%, and normal findings in 30% of patients.
