Implant-supported prostheses offer a solution to the problems experienced by edentulous patients with Sjögren’s syndrome. These patients often find it very difficult, if not impossible, to wear conventional complete dentures. Three clinical reports provide an insight into some of the difficulties involved in treating patients afflicted with this complex multifactorial disease using the Brånemark system.

Key words: implant supported prostheses, osseointegrated implants, Sjögren’s syndrome
