ABSTRACT

Background: Papillon-Lefevre syndrome (PLS), an autosomal recessive syndrome, causes multiple palmoplantar hyperkeratoses and aggressive periodontitis, resulting in loss of deciduous and permanent teeth at an early stage. This review aimed to discuss etiology, the clinical presentation of PLS, and different prosthetic rehabilitation options. Methods: Electronic literature was searched using the following keywords: "Papillon-Lefevre syndrome," 'prosthetic," "rehabilitation," "dental-implants," "over-denture," 'implant-supported prosthesis," "removable-prothesis," "short-implants," and "treatment," combined with Boolean operators AND/OR. Results: A total of 33 publications were found that discussed different treatment options for PLS patients. Conclusion: As demonstrated by the assessed studies, implant-supported prostheses are considered a superior treatment option in patients with PLS; however, multiple factors are considered, including age, the type of prosthetic rehabilitation, long vs. short dental implants, and other medical conditions that could affect the success of treatment.
