Abstract

Progressive systemic sclerosis is a generalized collagen disorder, which is characterized by fibrosis that involves skin, muscles and other organ systems like the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, heart and kidneys. Its oral manifestations include features like restricted mouth opening, widening of periodontal ligament space, pseudoankylosis, malocclusion and mandibular resorption. Mandibular resorption in systemic sclerosis is relatively uncommon and is reported only in 10% of cases. The purpose of reporting these three cases is to highlight the importance of screening all patients with advanced systemic sclerosis with panoramic radiographs. Panoramic radiographs are essential for early detection of resorption in the mandible to prevent possible consequences like pathological fractures, osteomyelitis and neuropathies.
