Current concepts in Sjögren's syndrome and considerations for the dental practitioner.

Abstract

Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a debilitating systemic disease that may have oral complications. Patients may be prone to dental caries and often have difficulty speaking and swallowing. Therefore, it is important for dental professionals to be familiar with the diagnosis and management of SS. This review outlines the new SS diagnostic criteria and provides an overview of recent findings related to disease etiology. In addition, management of SS patients with xerostomia is discussed.
