Ectodermal dysplasia comprises genetic disorders of divergent groups that include dystrophies of ectodermally derived structures and their accessory structures, including hair, glands, teeth, skin, and nails. The most frequent dental features in these patients involve complete or partial anodontia and altered morphology of teeth. Oligo-anodontia is considered to be an appalling impairment, and it has an impact on functional, aesthetic, and psychosocial well-being. This case report illustrates the oral rehabilitation of an adolescent patient with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (HED) by employing a fixed prosthesis. The treatment objectives were to accomplish an oral rehabilitation that was functional, provided aesthetics, and improve the self-esteem of the patient. Oral rehabilitation using a fixed prosthesis in this patient proved to be an acceptable treatment modality.
