Denture Stomatitis

Kaviena Baskaran [10]


Abstract: Despite therapeutic progress, opportunistic fungal infectious diseases have increased in prevalence and becoming a universal and unresolved problem. Denture stomatitis is the most prevalent and long standing problem in denture wearers. The etiopathogenesis of denture stomatitis is multifactorial and complex to understand. The placement of denture produces significant changes in the oral environment and adversely affects the integrity of oral tissues. The combination of entrapment of yeast cells in irregularities in denture-base and denture-relining materials, poor oral hygiene and several systemic factors is the most probable cause for the onset of this infectious disease. Hence colonization and growth on prostheses by Candida species are of clinical importance. This article gives a comprehensive review of etiopathogenesis and management and current trends in management of denture stomatitis.
