This clinical case report details the management of denture stomatitis in a 78-year-old female with uncontrolled Type II diabetes and chronic oral candidiasis. Presenting with discomfort and lesions under her decade-long worn partial denture, her condition was indicative of inflammatory papillary hyperplasia and fungal infection. Management involved a combination of systemic and local antifungal treatments, diode laser surgical removal of nodular lesions, fabrication of a new denture, and extensive oral hygiene education. Over a two-year period, a significant decrease in Candida levels was observed, though the persistence of the fungus necessitated ongoing monitoring. This case highlights the complexities of treating denture stomatitis in patients with systemic health issues, emphasizing the need for a multidisciplinary treatment approach and continuous care.

Keywords: Denture Stomatitis, Type II Diabetes, Oral Candidiasis, Prosthetic Hygiene, Multidisciplinary Treatment, Inflammatory Papillary Hyperplasia,
