Restoration of the Dentition in a Patient with a History of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Patients are concerned about dental disease and their appearance. Clinicians often must decide not only the type of restoration, but also the type of material for restoration that will provide aesthetics and longevity. A modern practitioner should know the pros and cons of different types of crowns and veneers. They are also responsible to provide treatment for patients with complicated medical histories. Risk assessments include current conditions, risks of recurrence, and suggestions for maintenance of restorations, as well as guidelines to promote the future health and well-being of the patient.
