Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The oral mucosa is not designed to provide a foundation for denture base and is called upon to function in a new environment. Although dentures are fabricated for the purpose of improving health and well being of the patient, they may occasionally become injurious to oral tissues. Dentures are worn because of their essential role in appearance, in speech and mastication far outweighs their potential for damage. A thorough knowledge of the histologic features of the structures that support dentures is necessary for proper denture service. Various pathologic lesions that can occur following use of dentures are reviewed in this article.
