PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of a comprehensive preventive program, based on mechanical plaque control and local and systemic antibacterial measures, on periodontal health and preservation of permanent teeth in patients with Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome (PLS). METHODS Thirty-five consecutive PLS patients (median age=7 years; range=3-19 years) were treated and followed every third month over 3 to 7 years. Visible plaque, bleeding on probing, periodontal pockets…

Even periodontally affected deciduous teeth of PLS patients can be treated successfully, and suppression of AA to below detection level seems to be of high significance.
Review Paper: Dental Treatment for Patients with Papillon-Lefèvre Syndrome (PLS)
It is evident that by regularly reducing the periopathogenic flora in the oral cavity and by instigating a potent antibiotic therapy at an early stage of any potential infection, patients with PLS are not predestined to be edentulous in the permanent dentition.
Papillon‐Lefèvre syndrome: Oral aspects and treatment
Prosthodontics management of PLS patients is very complex and sometimes requires invasive therapeutic treatments and in severe cases, digital techniques, could be help the clinician for increased patient comfort and minimized tissue damage.
Treatment of Patient With Papillon-Lefevre Syndrome With Short Dental Implants: A Case Report
Dental rehabilitation of a 34-year-old patient with PLS with severely atrophic mandible is described by means of 2 short (6 mm) dental implants between 2 mental foramina supporting an implant retained complete denture and there was no sign of bone resorption.
Periodontal status of children with primary immunodeficiencies: a systematic review
The published literature suggests that patients with PIDs can present with severe periodontitis and that conventional treatment approaches have limited benefits.

Multidisciplinary dental treatment for Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome: case report
This report aims to describe a case of an 11-year-old male patient diagnosed with Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome at 4 years of age, who is being treated using a multidisciplinary approach involving the areas of periodontics, pathology, and orthodontics to avoid loss of permanent teeth.
Papillon lefevre syndrome- A literature review and case report
A detailed review about the various possible etiologies, clinical features, differential diagnosis and treatment protocols followed for the periodontal management of Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome is provided.
Various drug delivery systems containing both antibiotics as well as plant extracts are in use to improve the clinical symptoms of periodontitis, the preferred one being the one which incorporates antibiotics in it.
Papillon- Lefèvre Syndrome: Report of a case and its management
A clinical presentation of a 15 year old male diagnosed with Papillon-Lefèvre Syndrome, characterized by diffuse palmoplantar keratoderma and precocious aggressively progressing periodontitis, is presented.


Treatment of Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome periodontitis.
It is suggested that controlling the periodontopathic microbiota by appropriate antibiotic and conventional periodontal therapy can arrest Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome periodontitis.
Dental treatment of Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome: 15-year follow-up.
The improvement of the patient's PMN function was coincident with lack of detection of certain periodontopathic bacteria, and if the PMN dysfunction of PLS is secondary to the infection, the reasons for the initiation of the disease still need to be clarified.
Combined mechanical and antibiotic periodontal therapy in a case of Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome.
Eradication (suppression beneath detection levels) of A. actinomycetemcomitans seems to play a significant role in the successful treatment of localized prepubertal periodontitis in PLS.

Extraction of all the deciduous teeth followed by a period of edentulousness may partially explain the fact that there has been no recurrent attachment loss in the permanent teeth up to age 17.
Combined systemic and local antimicrobial therapy of periodontal disease in Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome. A report of 4 cases.
It is indicated that in some patients suffering from Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome periodontal disease may be arrested by means of oral hygiene instruction, extraction of severely diseased teeth, scaling, systemic antibiotics and long-term antimicrobial irrigation.
Treatment of the periodontal component of Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome.
At age 16 years, the now-erupted teeth have normal gingiva and crevice depths, radiographs show no evidence of periodontal pathology, no periodontopathic bacteria are detected in gingival crevices, and leukocyte function is normal.

Treatment of prepubertal periodontitis. A case report and discussion.
The treatment of prepubertal periodontitis in a 3-year-old girl with Papillon-Lefèvre Syndrome and microbiological investigation reveals a prevalence of the coccoid forms, and radiographs show no evidence of periodontal pathology.
Clinical management of prepubertal periodontitis in 2 siblings with Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome.
Extraction of temporary teeth, resulting in edentulousness prior to eruption of permanent teeth in the youngest child seemed to prevent destructive periodontitis from developing in the permanent dentition, as well as systemic tetracycline medication.
Clinical, bacteriological, and immunological examinations and the treatment process of two Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome patients.
Papillon-Lefèvre Syndrome (PLS) is a rare disease associated with the early onset of periodontal breakdown in deciduous and permanent dentition and antibiotic therapy was instituted in addition to conventionalperiodontal therapy.
