Abstract

Self-inflicted oral trauma is often encountered in patients who lack cerebral control over the masticatory cycle. Many factors must be considered in treatment, and a variety of appliances may be fabricated to prevent injury to oral structures. This case report documents the use of a soft acrylic appliance in treatment of a comatose patient who showed ruminatory reflex chewing.
