Abstract:  
The aim of this study was to compare the ability of 46 isolates of Candida albicans to produce mycelial form with oral source in three groups of individuals including, removable appliance wearers, non-wearers and oral medicine patients. Saliva samples were obtained from all subjects along with a foam imprint from the fitting surface of the upper removable appliance in the case of patients. Colonies that were green-blue were confirmed as C. albicans by the germ-tube test. The production of mycelia was measured in vitro using defined medium (Lee’s medium) during 24 h. The results indicate that the production of mycelia in C. albicans isolated from removable appliance wearers and oral medicine patients are significantly different (p<0.025).
