Abstract

Patients with Sjögren's syndrome usually suffer from teeth discoloration and attrition due to xerostomia. If the anterior teeth are badly worn, problems such as loss of anterior guidance, occlusal disharmony, and limited space for restoration may occur. However, ideal occlusion is obtained in both centric and eccentric relation by regaining the disocclusion of the posterior teeth through the anterior and lateral guidance using twin-stage method. In this case, rehabilitation was performed for a Sjögren's syndrome patient with maxillary and mandibular incisor's severe attrition and teeth discoloration by using twin-stage method.
