Implant Treatment in Patients with Sjogren's Syndrome: A Review of the Literature and Two Clinical Case Reports.

Eur J Prosthodont Restor Dent 2016 Mar;24(1):40-6

Implant rehabilitation in patients with Sjogren's Syndrome is reported to offer an improvementin the quality of life, but the scientific evidence on implant survival in patients with Sjogren's Syndrome is scarce. The paper presents a review of the literature on the performance of dental implants in patients with Sjogren's Syndrome and two case reports of patients with Sjogren's Syndrome treated successfully with dental implants. Two female patients suffering from Sjogren's Syndrome were rehabilitated with implant-supported prostheses. After eighteen months and two years respectively, the patients were satisfied with function and aesthetics; restorations were comfortable, stable radiographic bone levels were noted and xerostomia was not reported to affect the function anymore.
