Chronic-irritation of the mouth resulting from ill-fitting dentures may be a risk factor for oral cancer, research by three Indian doctors has found. About 1,00,000 new cases of oral cancer are detected in India every year and it also leads to about 50,000 deaths annually. The doctors, however, said that no association has been proven between the duration of denture use and cancer formation.
