denture wearers, accompanied with erythematous under the denture, usually
asymptomatic and relates to the yeast of Candida. The irritation factors of chronic
atrophic candidiasis are ill fitting denture, using the denture at night and bad oral
hygiene. This is a case report of chronic atrophic candidiasis on patient using
removable denture without systemic disease. The trigger factors were using denture at
night, mistaken of cleaning the denture and dental calculus surround the artificial
teeth of denture. Final diagnosis is based on anamnesis, clinical examination and
microbiology examination. Therapy given was a topical antifungal applied

not using the denture at night, maintain the cleanliness of the denture regularly and
scaling the teeth. It can be concluded that management of chronic atrophic
