Ectodermal dysplasia is a group of inherited conditions in which two or more ectodermally derived anatomical structures fail to develop. Ectodermal dysplasia leads to anodontia and hypodontia. Oligodontia or total anodontia results in 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 17-year-old male patient who was reported the prosthodonic department was treated by conventional maxillary denture and mandibular removable partial denture.
