Introduction: Ectodermal Dysplasia is a syndrome commonly associated with oral characteristics like anodontia or hypodontia, hypoplastic teeth and underdevelopment of the alveolar ridges. In order to make these patients lead a normal life the role of prosthodontist is of utmost importance.

Methodology: This paper discusses the prosthetic management of two patients. One being a seven year old boy managed with a complete denture and the other patient, a twenty eight year old man managed with fixed prosthesis. Both cases presented with peculiar challenges like patient compliance for the seven year old boy and resorbed alveolar ridges for the adult patient. The young patient was rehabilitated with a complete denture having customized acrylic teeth to match the dentition age. Treatment plan for the adult patient consisted of an interim overlay RPD at an increased VDO for 6 weeks, followed by combination of fixed and implant prosthodontics in a phased manner. Three year follow up of the adult patient shows the successful prosthetic management.

Conclusion: The dental management of ectodermal dysplasia requires out of the box thinking to achieve successful rehabilitation as the challenges posed are peculiar. Also regular follow-up is of prime importance during the formative years to accommodate the growth of the child. Successful management of these patients goes a long way in improving their physiological and psychosocial well being.
