Abstract

Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is a genetic disorder affecting organs derived from the embryonic ectoderm. Symptoms manifest early in life, and dental anomalies, including partial or complete edentulism, affect most of these patients. Overdentures have been a popular and conservative treatment option for patients with ED with a few natural teeth. Advancements in digital technology have improved and positively influenced dentistry, including removable prosthodontics. This clinical report describes a positive treatment outcome using computer-engineered complete overdentures to rehabilitate a patient with dental manifestations of ectodermal dysplasia.
