    Denture stomatitis is a common disorder affecting denture wearers. It is characterized as inflammation and redness of the tissues that are covered by the denture when it is worn. It is often produces no symptoms that the patient is aware of; only a minority of sufferers experience pain, itching or burning. It is usually identified during a dental examination when the presence of inflammation and swelling under the denture is seen. It is associated with poor denture fit, increased age of the patient, increased age of the denture, continuous wearing of the denture and poor denture hygiene.
