Manoj Kumar Thakur, Harsh Kumar, Punita, Janmejay Singh

Ectodermal dysplasia is  a rare group of inherited conditions in which two or more ectodermally derived anatomical structures fail to develop or partially develop. Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is most common type in which patients have sparse scalp and body hair, reduced ability to sweat along with oligodontia or total anodontia leading to loss of function like  chewing,  speech  and affects  the appearance of the patient. Prosthodontic management can be completed with removable, fixed, overdenture, or implant-retained prostheses. Early dental treatment can improve the appearance of the patient, which leads to less emotional and  psychological  problems  to  the  patient.  For rehabilitation, it is  important  to  know  the  age, number  and condition of present teeth, and the status of growth of the patient. A 18 year-old male patient who was reported the dental department was treated by removable partial denture in maxillary arch and complete denture in mandibular arch.
