Abstract

Denture stomatitis is a benign condition, usually asymptomatic, that can affect edentulous patients. Studies have reported a prevalence of denture stomatitis affecting over 75% of denture wearers and, whilst the aetiology may be multifactorial, Candida albicans has a strong association with the condition, along with denture trauma and poor denture hygiene being associated local risk factors. This paper describes the aetiology, diagnosis and treatment of denture stomatitis, with the aim of helping clinicians to provide appropriate management of this condition.
