We present a case of oral papillomatosis occurring in a 52-year-old woman. This condition is well known and is characterized by an exuberant proliferation of multiple, flat, verruca-like elevations on the oral and pharyngeal mucosa. This is apparently the first documented case of oral papillomatosis due to trauma to the oral tissue from a dental prosthesis, with subsequent inflammation. Correction of the prosthesis resulted in marked improvement. This presentation emphasizes the causes, diagnosis, pathologic basis, and treatment of this condition.
