Propolis Gel May Help Prevent Oral Infections

Effects of Nystatin, Fluconazole and Propolis on Poly(Methyl Methacrylate) Resin Surface
Braz Dent J, 2008;19(3):190-6

The prevalence of candidosis in denture wearers is as well established as its treatment with antifungal agents (AAs). However, little research has been done regarding the effects of AAs on denture base surfaces. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of fluconazole (FLU), nystatin (NYS) and propolis orabase gel (PRO) on poly (methyl-methacrylate) (PMMA) surfaces…

In conclusion, PRO was able to induce changes in PMMA surface properties, such as roughness, which could be related to microbial adhesion.
