One of the most common tissue reactions to a chronically ill-fitting denture is the occurrence of hyperplasia of tissue along the denture borders.This proliferation of tissue is usually slow in developing and probably is as much a result of the resorption of the jaw bone as of the trauma of the loose denture.
Treatment and Prognosis:
This excess (hyperplasic) tissue should be surgically excised and either new dentures constructed or the dentures rebased to provide for a proper fit. If the denture is replaced or rebased, the growth should nor recurr. Complete regression, even after construction of a new denture will not occur
