Implant Supported Fixed Hybrid Prosthetic Treatment in A Sjogrens Syndrome patient. A Case Report
The case report presents the prosthetic management of a 47 year old female patient with Sjogren’s syndrome using a full mouth implant retained fixed (hybrid) prosthesis. The use of osseointegrated dental implants and the design of the superstructure showed that this treatment option could be successfully used in-patient with xerostomia. The objective of this report is to describe the clinical steps and comment on the factors that may have influenced the final results. The patient showed great compliance in smoking cessation and maintenance phase which are known to have great impact on the success of implant treatment. The fixed hybrid implant retained fixed prosthesis offers good patient acceptance along with aesthetics, comfort and function in cases of edentulism.
