This work aims to investigate the effect of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) – fabricated prostheses on oral tissues. The novelty of this study was the comparative investigation of thermal signatures of the denture bearing maxillary and mandibular mucosa using passive infrared (IR) thermography. IR thermography is an optoelectronic method of investigation that has only recently begun to be used in dentistry. In this study, it was investigated the influence of age on the mucosal response at the contact with PMMA, and also the increased incidence of denture stomatitis at the level of maxillary mucosal prosthetic support..
