The buccal mucosa recouvring the edentulous ridges is composed with two tissues limited by a basal membrane: a stratified squamous keratinized epithelium overlying the connective tissue. After insertion of complete denture, the most common pathology is the inflammation of the mucosa in front dentures from several causes (infection, trauma, allergy). The bacterial deposit control and effective hygiene are able to treat prosthetic stomatitis. Nevertheless it must be emphasize that prosthetic treatment must be correctly conducted and often controlled.
