Abstract

Denture sore mouth is most often caused by improperly fitting dentures. Ulcers, stomatitis, hyperplasia, bone resorption, and chronic candidiasis may develop under improperly fitting dentures. If extensive bone resorption occurs, dental implants may be necessary. Malignant changes can develop.
