Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is a congenital syndrome characterized by developmental failure of two or more ectodermal structures and their accessory appendages. ED is commonly a difficult condition to manage with prosthodontics because of the typical oral deficiencies and because the afflicted individuals are quite young when they are evaluated for treatment. It is important that these individuals receive dental treatment at an early age for physiologic and psychosocial reasons. Patient with this disease often need a multidisciplinary approach to treatment planning and dental treatment to regain appropriate function, esthetics, and comfort. The definitive treatment plan may include removable, fixed, or implant-supported prosthesis or a combination of these options. This article reviews the literature that pertains to the prosthodontic treatment of the ED and the review includes considerations in patient management and timing of treatment.
