Dental implant prosthetic rehabilitation of a patient with epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica

Some rare diseases with oral manifestations warrant fixed/implant-supported restorations – a case report
Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica (DEB) describes a form of hereditary epidermolysis bullosa (EB), which is characterized by fragility of the skin and mucous membranes and manifests itself with blistering. In connection with dental and oral surgical procedures, blistering and detachment of the oral mucosa in all areas exposed to pressure and contact are to be expected in particular in these patients. Dental prosthodontic care of patients with DEB is challenging – especially when the condition is associated with microstomia. In general, fixed restorations should be aimed for whenever possible. Implants can make a significant contribution to improving the quality of life.
