Abstract

Scant knowledge exists on the type of restorative treatments Sjögren's syndrome patients (SSP) receive in spite of their high dental disease burden due to hyposalivation. Increased adoption of electronic dental records (EDR) could help in leveraging information from these records to assess dental treatment outcomes in SSP. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility of using EDR to characterize the dental treatments SSP received and assess the longevity of implants in these patients. We identified 180 SSP in ten years of patients' data at the Indiana University School of Dentistry clinics. A total of 104 (57.77%) patients received restorative or endodontic treatments. Eleven patients received 23 implants with a survival rate of 87% at 40 months follow-up. We conclude that EDR data could be used for characterizing the treatments received by SSP and for assessing treatment outcomes.
