Abstract

Parkinson disease (PD) is a progressive neurologic disorder. Compromised voluntary and involuntary muscle control of the orofacial-pharyngeal muscles of patients with PD may lead to difficulty in mastication, dysphagia, and tremor of the mouth and chin. All of these problems represent major challenges for the clinician with respect to the oral rehabilitation. This clinical report describes the use of the All-on-4 concept implantation for mandibular rehabilitation with a fixed detachable dental prosthesis in an edentulous patient with PD. The treatment steps, outcome, and limitations are discussed.
