Abstract

Sjögren's syndrome presents dentists with many challenges, from diagnosis to therapy. The secondary effects of xerostomia cause a spectrum of oral problems, including caries, candidal infection, and inflammation of the oral mucosa. The oral signs and symptoms may be the first manifestations of systemic aspects of the disease. Sjögren's syndrome requires both dental and medical management, and a program of home care.
