Abstract

This case report describes the esthetic dental treatment of a patient with Cohen syndrome where microabrasion was used to treat dental fluorosis. The patient's teeth had white and light yellow spots, which were diagnosed as moderate dental fluorosis. These spots were treated with microabrasion using pumice paste and 37% phosphoric acid. The paste was applied with a rubber cup on a low-speed handpiece and manually using a wooden stick. It took four appointments to treat all of the patient's teeth. Topical neutral fluoride was applied after each appointment to decrease any dental sensitivity. The esthetic result was satisfactory. Esthetic dental treatment may result in positive emotional and behavioral changes in patients with special needs.
