Geriatric patients wearing complete denture may have a variety of intraoral lesions. These lesions can cause discomforts which interfere with mastication, swallowing, speech, and daily social activities. These oral findings in patients wearing removable prosthesis can be found as an acute or chronic reaction to a mechanical injury, microbial infection (mostly Candida), or denture base material irritation. These injuries could be denture stomatitis, traumatic ulcer and fibrous hyperplasia. The aim of this article is to determine the most common type of oral lesions in patients attending royal medical service hospitals in Jordan. Then the final results will be correlated to patient age, gender, and length of time of denture usage. Oral health is essential in the quality of life of edentulous patients. For this reason, it is important to know the most common intraoral lesion, to determine its main risk factor, and to decide the best treatment option.
