Oral cavity is open growth system with an interrupted introduction and removal of microbes and their nutrients of all the types of microbes living in, our mouth in abundant number. It has been estimated that more than 600 different types of bacteria are present in saliva. Due to which periodontal diseases are occur severely. In which Streptococcus mutans, Staphylococcus aureus , Enterococcus feacalis, Streptococcus pyogens, Lactobacilli sp. are common infectors and results into dental carries and common encountered problem in dentistry is loss of teeth and consequential replacement by RPD/CD.However it has been reported that the presence of a prosthesis (RPD/CD) in oral cavity promotes the condition for establishment and accumulation of micro-organism. It increases infection to edentulous space and adjacent healthy teeth. Various antibiotics has proven to be effective in showing antimicrobial activity against gram positive and gram negative bacteria and fungi. So, instead of using oral drug (chlorohexidine) , the application of oral depositors reduces the chances of oral infection related to RPD/CD and minimize the formation of MDR sp. of micro-oraganism including bacteria and fungi. It also protects the liver and nerve system from damage due to excessive use of antibiotic.
