Most effective way of treatment in this patient is extractions of rest of the teeth and roots ( source of chronic oral thrush due to poor oral hygiene ) if any, followed by upper and lower artificial dentures, under guidance of a Dentistry.

Ch gen periodontitis is aggravating the condition.. Missing teeth.. Sharp edges.. No brushing.. Treatment should be Extraction of all teeth and CD If not ready, then oral prophylaxis, Sharp edges reduction, RPD.. Medicines, Tab Rebagen, Lexanox ointment + dologel ct, fluconazole 150 mg 8tab(1st day BD then OD), candid mouth paint, Turmix tab tid, syp polybion, tab azithral 500
