Polymer-Infiltrated-Ceramic-Network CAD/CAM Restorations for Oral Rehabilitation of Pediatric Patients with X-Linked Ectodermal Dysplasia
Foucher, France / Mainjot, Amélie K.
Functional and esthetic oral rehabilitation of young patients affected by ectodermal dysplasia is traditionally performed with direct composite restorations, which encounter various limitations. However, recent advances in computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) composites have led to the introduction of high-performance materials. In the present case report, a 9-year-old patient was treated with 20 CAD/CAM partial and peripheral restorations in polymer-infiltrated-ceramic-network material to restore deciduous and permanent teeth. The restorations were minimally invasive, since they did not require any tooth tissue preparation. Appropriate occlusal relationships with increased vertical dimension of occlusion were obtained. Tooth anatomy and esthetics were significantly improved, and chairtime was reduced.
