In this study, the effects of various enzymes to remove C. Albicans, contamined on to the different kinds of specimens prepared from 5 different denture base materials were investigated. All kinds of enzymes investigated were found to be effective, but both protase and the pure lipase were observed to be more effective than the others by their zero colonies calculated. It was decided that pepsin, trypsin and pancreatic amylase have less effects on C. Albicans than the others.
