Denture Induced Stomatitis-A Case Report
Background: Denture hygiene habits are liable to change from one person to another. There has been a close
relationship between irregular denture surfaces, poor oral hygiene or ill-fitted denture and opportunistic oral
microorganism which leads to diseases like denture induced stomatitis.
Case Presentation: A 70-year-old patient reported to the Department of Prosthodontics with a chief complaint
of broken denture and pain in oral mucosa. The patient history, oral and denture examination indicated that
the patient had denture stomatitis.
Management & Results: The patient was advised to have good oral hygiene and anti-microbial gels. After a
week of follow up, the patient showed good results with the treatment.
Conclusion: It can be concluded that the patient needs to be educated regarding denture and oral hygiene is
the most important step to prevent this type of disease.
