Introduction: Denture stomatitis is referred as mild inflammation and redness of the oral mucus membrane that occurs beneath the denture; mostly seen in case of maxillary denture wearer. 90 percent of cases, Candida species are involved. This is the most common problem of denture wearers, who maintain poor oral hygiene. The occurrence of condition is increased in presence of systematic diseases. Symptoms may vary from asymptomatic to painful conditions. Occasionally candidal growth is very severe and in that case can cause discomfort, altered taste, dysphasia and burning mouth syndrome. Recurrence of condition after treatment is common in absence of successful decontamination of denture, poor oral and denture hygiene.

Summary: A search of peer reviewed literature from January 2010 up to August 2020 reporting on denture stomatitis in presence of anti-plaque agents and/or antifungal drugs and their effects on candidal growth and conclusions were conducted by using PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane databases. The search term include Denture stomatitis OR Denture erythematous stomatitis OR oral Candidiasis. Patients with systemic diseases, such as diabetes, HIV, history of taking antibiotic therapy, nutritional deficiencies and those wearing their dentures for less than 1 year were excluded.

Conclusion: Although many efforts have been made to reduce the denture stomatitis occurrence in partially / completely edentulous patients. This systematic review found that anti-plaque agents for candidal growth reduction are effective with lack of side effects.
