Periodontal management in patients with Charcot Marie tooth syndrome: Clinical case

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Daniel Eduardo Salazar Domínguez, Esther Yazmín Benavides García, María del Carmen Theriot Girón, Jorge Yitzhak Hazhemy Garza Silva, Marianela Garza Enríquez and Jesús Israel Rodríguez Pulido
ABSTRACT:This article refers to a clinical case for dental management with a periodontal approach in Charcot Marie Tooth syndrome. This syndrome is an inherited neuromuscular disorder, characterized by chronic progressive muscular atrophy, as well as sensory and motor disorders in all 4 limbs. Although there is a large number of publications in the medical field, the information on this disease is very limited with respect to the dental area and may have similarities with the management of other diseases where there are muscular atrophies, for which the emphasis of the management of the disease not only goes from periodontal therapy but also to plaque control through the use of adequate hygiene devices and proper brushing technique. These patients usually have advanced periodontal disease due to an accumulation of dental plaque in large quantities, because of the impossibility of good oral hygiene due to motor limitations.
