The article presents a histological study on the reactions of tissue in the anterior and lateral alveolar ridges of the mandible that are caused by complete dentures. Segments of the alveolar ridge were taken from deceased persons with a complete denture and from deceased persons with prosthetically untreated areas serving as controls. pathologic tissue conditions spread over the entire region of the alveolar ridge were revealed by the histologic examination of denture wearers that were of a higher degree than that observed in the controls. In the mandibles of the denture wearers, higher degree of keratinization in the epithelium and an increase in signs of local inflammation was found. excessive wear of the anterior teeth was revealed by more than one half of the complete dentures.
