  4. 4. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  5. 5. Microscopic anatomy of the mucous membrane in oral cavity  Has thinner horny layer than skin.  Sigmund and Weber et.al.: claimed that mucosa has no horny layer.  Spreng(1945) : demonstrated horny layer in palatine mucosa and claimed that hornification is a reaction to the wear and tear produced by the denture.  Orban(1953) : first to state positively that oral mucosa has horny layer. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  6. 6. EPITHELIUM  Its thickness is not more than 0.20mm  Consists of several differentiated cells covered by stratum corneum  Important as a protective mechanism www.indiandentalacademy.com
  7. 7. Stratum corneum  It has a mean thickness of 13.2micron  Appears as homogenous band stained red  Consists of closely packed cells which appear to have no nuclei.  Scrapings from palatal mucosa shows cells appearing as fried egg with nucleus in centre as yolk www.indiandentalacademy.com

  9. 9. Stratum spinosum  cells are polygonal/rounded connected to each other by protoplasm in the form of fibrillar structure called tonofibrils  In the mesh b/w the fibrils, tissue fluid facilitate the metabolism of the cells  Metabolism is facilitated by extension of the papillae of connective tissue into the epithelium www.indiandentalacademy.com
  10. 10. Stratum basale  Formed by thin layers of amorphous materials and of reticular fibers  Demonstrated using PAS  Under EM : seems to have 1. basal lamina 2.reticular lamina www.indiandentalacademy.com
  11. 11. Functions  Provide adhesion on one side to epithelial cells and other side to connective tissue  Act as barriers to the diffusion of molecules  Play role in cell organization  May influence the regeneration of peripheral nerves after injury  May play a role in re- establishing of neuro- muscular junctions www.indiandentalacademy.com
  12. 12. Lamina propria  Characterized by collagenic and elastic fibers  Fibers run parallel to the surface of epithelium and extend in papillae perpendicular to their main course  This wavy course provides the tissue with high degree of elasticity www.indiandentalacademy.com
  13. 13. sub mucosa  Constitutes major bulk of the mucous membrane  Contains :  Other components (blood vessels, lymphatic vessels and nerves)  Fatty tissues  Glands  Muscles fibers www.indiandentalacademy.com

  36. 36. Correction of ill-fitting dentures  Rough surface > smoothened and polished  Relining > soft tissue conditioner classification: 1) short term a) tissue conditioner b) functional impression materials 2) long term heat cure silicone cold cure www.indiandentalacademy.com
  37. 37.  B) acrylic based resins heat cure cold cure 3) others: polyvinyl chloride polyvinyl acetate polyurethane hydrophilic acrylates www.indiandentalacademy.com
  38. 38. COMPOSITION In general they are supplied in powder and liquid form.  POWDER – poly (ethyl methacrylate)  LIQUID – A mixture of aromatic ester and ethyl alcohol.  The ester behaves as a plasticizer and the alcohol is penetrated which speeds up the process. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  39. 39. On mixing the two together a slurry is formed. The liquid then penetrates between the molecules of the powder, a process accelerated by the ethyl alcohol present and the whole material becomes stiffer until a gel is formed, the setting therefore is a physical process, there being no chemical reaction involved. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  41. 41. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  42. 42. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  43. 43. Method to condition the tissues traumatized by ill-fitting dentures  Ask the patient not to wear the dentures for days – week period  Stimulate the diseased tissue with a gauze dipped in warm saline > 3 times a day  Tissue side of the denture should be clean www.indiandentalacademy.com

  55. 55. FLABBY RIDGE  It is due to the replacement of bone by fibrous tissue  Common in maxillary anterior region (when mandibular anteriors are remaining)  They offer poor support to the denture www.indiandentalacademy.com
  56. 56. Mechanism Direction of applied force of mastication causes slight rotation of the denture around the anterior maxillary alveolus. Pressure of the distally rotating anterior flange against the labial plate of bone causes resorbtion. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  57. 57. The shearing force applied to the periosteum by friction with the base during rotation results in fibrous hyperplasia . When the patient incises the pad, fibrous tissue is compressed & upward movement of the maxillary denture causes downward displacement posteriorly ,with loss of retention in the post dam area & development of fibrous maxillary tuberosity. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  58. 58. TREATMENT  SURGICAL: i) surgical removal to improve stability of denture ii) Augment the alveolar ridge with biocompatible bone substitutes iii) In extreme atrophic condition, flabby ridges should not be totally removed because the vestibular area will be limited. www.indiandentalacademy.com
