Parodontale Rehabilitation bei einer gehörlosen Patientin mit symptomatischer Epilepsie bei Sturge­Weber­Krabbe­ Syndrom


Kaufmann, Manuela E; Oechslin, Dominik A; Barghorn, André; Schmidlin, Patrick R (2021). Parodontale Rehabilitation bei einer gehörlosen Patientin mit symptomatischer Epilepsie bei Sturge­Weber­Krabbe­ Syndrom. Swiss Dental Journal, 131(4):327-338.

Abstract

When a syndrome forms the background of a systemic involvement of periodontal disease, it is necessary to fully exploit the resources outside, which soon reaches its limits in private practice. In the patient's environment, it must be checked whether support for the patient can be guaranteed. Without support, as in this presented case, the patient's oral hygiene could hardly be maintained. This article reports on a female patient who was referred to the Center for Dental Medicine at the University of Zurich. In addition to various secondary carious lesions, an apical whitening, two carious wisdom teeth and two extremely mobile molars in the third quadrant, the patient had chronic, localized advanced (stage III, grade B) periodontitis associated with systemic disease (deafness and Sturge-Weber syndrome). For two years, the patient was treated at the Department of Periodontology. Due to the strong bleeding tendency on the left side, facial localization of the naevus flammeus, the patient was partially referred to the Polyclinic of Oral Surgery and treated there. Numerous oral hygiene sessions, scaling and root planing, restoration with composite fillings, a root filling, removal of wisdom teeth and finally removal of hypermobile molars 36 and 37 during corona lockdown were performed. In the meantime, the patient has been orally rehabilitated. Home oral hygiene was reorganized with the patient's family and the patient was discharged to a close supportive periodontal recall for the time being.
