Twelve-year follow-up of a Treatment with Implant-Retained Dental Prostheses in a patient with Sjogren’s syndrome: A clinical report

Miremadi, S. A. and Babaei, M.

This 12-year study evaluated the implant survival rate, prosthetic maintenance in a patient with sjogren syndrome who received implant supported prosthesis.  A 58-year-old female with secondary sjogren syndrome was received 12 implants in both the maxilla and mandible. Panoramic radiographic was taken after implant placement. At 12years, all implants remained osseointegrated. Plaque index scores showed improvement in oral hygiene during the first year.

Conclusions: The 12-year study showed that, despite long-term use of corticoids, favorable implant survival rate can be achieved in patients with sjogren syndrome.
