Oral lesions related to dentures

Denture

Oral lesions in denture wearers constitute a heterogeneous group of tissue changes, both with regard to pathogenesis, clinical and histopathological appearance, and possible complications.

Dentures may be the direct cause of these conditions, due to changing environmental conditions of the oral cavity and loading of the oral mucosa. However, systemic conditions and general diseases may influence the oral environment and alter tissue responses and resistance.

Enlaces Patrocinados

Different medical conditions associated with hyposalivation and parafunctional activity may result in higher risk of oral mucosal alterations. Dundar and IlhanKal reported diabetes mellitus as a risk factor for denture stomatitis and denture hyperplasia.

Endodontic


The prevalence of oral mucosal lesions has been shown to increase with age.Coelho et al. have explained that tooth loss increases with age, and a removable partial denture (PD) may be later substituted by a complete denture (CD).

Why are dentures out of adjustment?

Dental Prostheses

The adjustment of a prosthesis is made when they lose stability. Bone loss is the main reason prosthetics become unstable. Bone reduction may be due to age but also due to periodontal disease (gingivitis / periodontitis).

If you wear dentures and do not practice good oral hygiene habits, you could be at risk for gum disease. Smoking, certain medications and diabetes also promote gingivitis development and the need for a denture adjustment.

In addition, chewing difficulties involving dentures sliding and moving around in the mouth are clear indications your dentures need to be refitted.
