Abstract

Soft tissue overgrowths inside oral cavity can present with wide range of clinical manifestations and some of them can be even asymptomatic. Oral squamous papilloma is one of that asymptomatic lesion described in the literature with extremely low virulence and infectivity rate. Soft tissue overgrowths can sometimes interfere with denture retention. Here we report a case of squamous papilloma in a 60 years old edentulous female who presented with loss of denture retention.

Keywords: denture retention; papilloma; sialadenoma papilliferum.
