PMID:  1939813     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This paper reviews both past and current knowledge concerning the controversial subject of mucosal responses associated with denture wearing. The subject has been considered in terms of both gross clinical and histopathological changes arising from daily prosthesis use. Displacement of basal seat tissues during function has been discussed, along with denture-induced alterations of the local microfloral ecosystems. The influences of common drugs and therapeutic regimens such as ionizing radiation treatments have been considered, and as with all the fields discussed, have been related to clinical use and success of prostheses.
