Maxillary Implant Prosthodontic Treatment Using Digital Laboratory Protocol for a Patient with Epidermolysis Bullosa: A Case History Report
Agustín-Panadero, Rubén / Serra-Pastor, Blanca / Peñarrocha-Oltra, David / Peñarrocha-Diago, Miguel
Epidermolysis bullosa belongs to a group of genetic diseases that present with skin disorders and is characterized by generalized blister formation in response to mechanical trauma. This article reports on the management of a recessive dystrophic epidermolytic patient with four remaining periodontally compromised maxillary teeth. Treatment involved placement of four maxillary implants and use of computer-aided design/computerassisted manufacture techniques to fabricate a fixed full-arch implant-supported prosthesis. The prescribed dental treatment protocol led to a successful short-term prosthodontic outcome.
