Abstract

Background/purpose: Denture soft liners, especially used for elders who have poor disinfection habits, provide a favourable environment for accumulation and colonization of microorganisms. This in vitro study is aimed to investigate the effectiveness of natural carvacrol incorporation into soft lining material on the inhibition of oral pathogens.
