VELIZ-MENDEZ, Sebastián et al. Challenges in orthodontic treatment in a patient with down syndrome, a case report. Int. j interdiscip. dent. [online]. 2022, vol.15, n.1, pp.87-89. ISSN 2452-5596.

Down Syndrome is a genetic condition identified by the presence of a variable degree of cognitive disability and unique physical characteristics and traits, which also have an impact on the stomatognathic system.

The aim of this case report is to report the therapeutic challenges that we can face to achieve a comprehensive treatment. Patient’s mothers consult for dental crowding. The patient presents systemic diseases associated with Down Syndrome, sensory anomalies, generalized gingivitis, dental caries lesions, maxillary dental anomalies, and traumatic fibroma in the tongue. The treatment included adaptation to dental care, preventive and restorative dentistry, periodontics and orthodontics. After 25 months of treatment, comprehensive discharge was achieved, with modifications in the treatment objectives and orthodontic therapeutic management in several occasions. Comprehensive treatment in patients with Down Syndrome is possible, considering a good adaptation to the treatment, achievable objectives and multidisciplinary teamwork.
