Abstract

Oral biotype includes the local defense factors represented by oral mucosa, reticulohistiocytic system and saliva which opposes biocenosis composed of various microorganisms, normally achieving the state of “biological balance”. Material and methods: The study included 23 patients with clinical manifestations of oral candidiasis admitted during the period 2014-2016 to the Dental Surgery Clinic of the Iasi “Grigore T. Popa” University of Medicine and Pharmacy. Results: Under favorable conditions, many non-pathogenic species become virulent in the host organism. These conditions are created using antibiotics, corticoids, immunosuppressant, antifungal, psychotropic drugs, contraceptives, radiation therapy, hormone treatment, etc. In general conditions caused by metabolic disturbances and decreased body resistance associated with microbial, vitamin and enzymatic imbalances the development of mycoses is favored. Conclusions: Diagnosis and correct treatment of mycoses of the oral cavity avoiding complications, oral cavity being the starting point for many endogenous infections, sepsis included.
