Denture-Related Stomatitis (DRS) is defined as an inflammatory process of the mucosa underlying a removable, partial or complete, denture (Figueiral et al., 2007). The prevalence of this pathology is reported to vary from 11% to 67% (Figueiral et al., 2007). There is also a great variability in the prevalence of the different types of DRS, characterized according to Newton’s classification (Figueiral et al., 2007).
