The aim of this case report is to describe the oral rehabilitation of a young patient of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (ED) with maxillary and mandibular complete dentures. Such patients often present with poor aesthetics, mastication, and social behavior. Treatment resulted in an improvement of esthetics, function and psychology of the patient. Children with EDs do not have normal patterns of growth and a risk and benefit analysis must be made to access the value of implant placement. Replacement of teeth by implants is usually restricted to patients with completed craniofacial growth.
