Abstract

The presence of mucosal lesions among institutionalized adults is quite high and most frequent lesions of the oral mucosa that are present are those induced by wearing dentures. These types of lesions are associated with instability of dentures, inadequate oral hygiene and irregular dental check-ups. The main aim was to determine the prevalence of oral mucosal changes associated with the wearing of prosthetic devices among institutionalized elderly. Commonly present changes associated with long-term use of prosthetic devices or inadequately dimensioned prosthetic devices. In the investigated population very important pathological lesions are those changes associated with wearing prosthetic devices because of their high prevalence. Also it is very important that pathological lesions require constant monitoring.
