Patients with Gilles de la Tourette's syndrome develop symptoms during childhood. Repetitive various motor tics or speech tics that are spontaneous, aimless, and involuntary are characteristic of the syndrome (1). Patients with the syndrome have been considered to have an aggressive, impulsive, and obsessive character (2). (3). Suicide is one of the mental symptoms of the syndrome. Routine dental treatment with this syndrome can be difficult.
