|Abstract:||A clinical study on the presentation of denture hyperplasia was conducted on 15 patients with particular reference to age group, use and care of dentures, type and location of the hyperplastic lesion. The pilot study shows that a greater proportion of the studied sample were in the 50-60 years age group with a majority of them being unaware of the presence of the lesion in their mouth. Eleven of them responded that they use their dentures day and night. The incidence of lesions occurring in the lower jaw compared with the upper jaw was approximately 2:1. The average duration of denture usage was 8.7 years. Correct use of dentures and regular maintenance with professional care can help prevent the occurrence of these lesions.|
