The surface roughness of dental materials can make cleaning difficult, thus facilitating retention of food debris and accumulation of microorganisms. The aim of this study was to assess whether thickness, color and the polishing process influence the surface roughness of ethylene-vinyl-acetate (EVA) sheets and the amount of microorganisms that adhere to them.
