Problems with the mouth, oral cavity and teeth can have a very negative impact on quality of life for people with scleroderma, leading to difficulties with speech and eating. Mouth ulcers, receding gums, loose teeth these are just some of the dental and oral issues Scleroderma and Raynaud's can cause Most oral manifestations begin with tongue rigidity and facial skin changes. Bone resorption of mandibular angle and widening of periodontal ligament space on periapical radiographs are important radiological findings Patients with scleroderma present with a wide range of oral manifestations. This is due to the unique manifestations involving the oral soft tissues and resulting in restricted mouth opening, xerostomia, erosion of teeth, and periodontal disease improve my oral health? Dentists know a lot about oral health, medications, and systemic health. However, just like primary care physicians, dentists do not know as much about scleroderma as your rheumatologist. Here are a list of scleroderma related oral health issues about which you may ask your dentist. Microstomia (small mouth) and Tightness of the Mucosa (the lining of the mouth) Problems

Oral manifestations have a major impact on quality of life and require specific treatments that should be performed as early as possible. Widening of the periodontal ligament space, that seems to be linked to an increased collagen synthesis, is one of the most common dental radiographic finding The radiologist must also be aware of all possible manifestations, since occasionally the clinical diagnosis is not obvious, the skin changes being overshadowed or preceded by involvement of internal organs. In such instances the correct diagnosis may first be suggested radiologically. Scleroderma is twice as common in females as in males
Scleroderma is a group of autoimmune diseases that may result in changes to the skin, blood vessels, muscles, and internal organs. The disease can be either localized to the skin or involve other organs, as well. Symptoms may include areas of thickened skin, stiffness, feeling tired, and poor blood flow to the fingers or toes with cold exposure.

Background: Systematic scleroderma is a rare chronic autoimmune disease of unknown aetiology. The aim of this study was to identify the prevalence of orofacial pathognomonic conditions in patients with systemic scleroderma using only randomised prospective studies that investigated the treatment of oral and maxillofacial changes, highlighted associations between the disease and Sjogren's. This case exemplifies the severe gastrointestinal manifestations of scleroderma. Esophageal, gastric, small intestinal, and colonic motility disorders were present. The patient was unable to survive on oral feedings or tube feedings. He was clinically resistant to the pharmacologic stimulation of gastrointestinal motility. After considerable discussion, the patient was begun on intravenous. Scleroderma refers to an autoimmune connective tissue fibrosing disease, including three different subsets: localized scleroderma, limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis, and diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis with divergent patterns of organ involvement, autoantibody profiles, management, and prognostic implications. Although systemic sclerosis is considered the disease prototype that causes.
Orofacial manifestations of scleroderma are probably more common than reported. They mostly affect women with a mean age of 40.

Scleroderma is a disorder involving oral and facial tissues, with skin hardening, thin lips, deep wrinkles, xerostomia, tongue rigidity, and microstomia. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of oral manifestations and temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) patients compared with healthy people Systemic scleroderma can affect almost any organ in the body, and there is a large variability of symptoms among affected individuals. One of the most common and earliest manifestations of the disease is Raynaud phenomenon, which involves blood vessel spasms (vasospasms) induced by cold temperature or stress Scleroderma is a group of conditions affecting approximately 300,000 people in the United States. When scleroderma only affects the skin, it is considered localized. However, if it affects the skin and internal organs, it is viewed as systemic, also called Systemic Sclerosis (SSc). SSc affects approximately 100,000 people, or about one.
In this review, we analyze the effects of systemic lupus erythematosus and scleroderma on the gastrointestinal tract.

Common orofacial findings include xerostomia, gastroesophageal reflux disease and limited mouth opening. This review article describes scleroderma, or PSS, and its various manifestations These extracutaneous manifestations often were unrelated to the site of the skin lesions and sometimes were associated with multiple organ involvement. The risk of developing SSc was very low [1 patient]. This subgroup of patients with juvenile localized scleroderma should be evaluated extensively, treated more aggressively, and monitored.
The systemic form, called systemic sclerosis, also commonly causes skin discoloration, swollen hands, narrowing of blood vessels in the hands and feet in response to cold, red spots on the face from swelling blood vessels, calcium deposits under the skin, and heartburn and other gastrointestinal issues. In addition, the lungs, heart, or kidneys can become affected and stop functioning. Systemic scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is an autoimmune rheumatic disease characterised by excessive production and accumulation of collagen, called fibrosis, in the skin and internal organs and by injuries to small arteries.There are two major subgroups of systemic sclerosis based on the extent of skin involvement: limited and diffuse. The limited form affects areas below, but not above. Scleroderma is a chronic, autoimmune connective tissue disorder that is primarily characterized by thickening and hardening of the skin and other tissue. In localized scleroderma, the skin is the main organ system involved and muscles and bones may or may not be. In systemic scleroderma, internal organs such as the digestive tract, heart, lungs.
CREST Syndrome and Scleroderma. Some people have a type of scleroderma called CREST syndrome (or limited scleroderma). Unlike other types, which only affect the arms, legs, and face, this kind can. The term scleroderma is derived from the Greek words skleros (hard or indurated) and derma (skin) and it is used to describe a disease characterized by progressive skin hardening and induration. Scleroderma is an aspect of systemic sclerosis, a systemic connective tissue disease that also involves subcutaneous tissue, muscles, and internal organs

Levels of certain important signaling molecules called cytokines are associated with different clinical manifestations in patients with scleroderma, a study suggests.. The study, Different profile of cytokine production in patients with systemic sclerosis and association with clinical manifestations, was published in the journal Immunology Letters Gastrointestinal Manifestations of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Scleroderma In this review, we analyze the effects of systemic lupus erythematosus and scleroderma on the gastrointestinal tract. There is a wide variation of gastrointestinal manifestations from these autoimmune disorders including but not limited to: oral ulcers, dysphagia. Skin sclerosis is a cardinal feature of SSc that usually develops first in the fingers and hands. Non-pitting oedema of the fingers is often an early cutaneous manifestation of SSc ( Fig. 1 ), after which the skin of the swollen fingers starts to thicken and highly disabling sclerosis of the fingers (sclerodactyly) develops In patients with diffuse scleroderma, the skin involvement usually affects on the upper arms, thighs, chest wall and trunk. Some people with systemic scleroderma have normal skin but have other manifestations of the disease. Limited scleroderma. Limited scleroderma is also sometimes called CREST syndrome, which is an acronym of its common features Renal Involvement in Scleroderma. Involvement of the kidneys occurs almost exclusively in patients with diffuse scleroderma and is exceedingly rare in limited scleroderma. The onset of renal involvement in diffuse scleroderma typically occurs in the first 1-2 years during the time when skin involvement is progressively worsening
