The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of  OLEOZON 
(ozonized sunflower oil) in  the treatment of Subprosthesis 
Stomatitis. 122 patient suffering from this disease were treated 
on "Briones Montoto" Dental Clinic (Pinar del Rio province) 
between January to April of 1996. Patients were divided in 3 
groups: group 1, 50 patients treated with OLEOZON, without their 
prosthetics device;  group 2, 45 patients without their prosthesis 
and without OLEOZON treatment and group 3, 27 patients who 
maintained their prosthesis and  received OLEOZON, independently 
of the stomatitis degree affection. The influence of different 
factors: age, sex and stomatitis degree  affection was 
statistically analyzed, through contingency tables. The healing 
was total (100 %) in the first group and the time required was 
reduced from 43.1 (group 2) to 8.4 days, not detecting any adverse 
reactions. 89 % and 4 % of healing was obtained in group 2 and 3, 
respectively. It is concluded that the withdrawal of the 
prosthesis is a very important aspect to consider and that with 
OLEOZON applications the healing time is reduced significantly.
