Abstract

Specific considerations are needed for the dental treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis because they may experience disease-related problems such as trismus, impairment of the temporomandibular joint or hands, and side effects of medication that affect alveolar bone. Here we describe successful prosthetic treatment that addressed disease-related problems, including trismus, in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis. (Int J Maxillofac Prosthetics 2022;5:18-21)
