Individuals affected by ectodermal dysplasia syndromes have abnormalities of the glands, tooth buds, hair follicles, and nail development.
Oral finding in ectodermal dysplasia patient are significant and can include multiple abnormalities of the dentition such as anodontia, hypodontia
or malformed and widely spaced peg like teeth, loss of occlusal vertical dimension, protuberant lips and lack of normal alveolar
ridge development. This clinical report describes a combined surgical, pedodontic, and prosthodontic approach for the treatment of a
patient with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia.
