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.
