Ectodermal dysplasia associated hypodontia presents a significant esthetic and functional concern to the patient. Oral rehabilitation
of ectodermal dysplasia most often requires a multidisciplinary approach to achieve desired cosmetic results. This case report
illustrates Prosthodontic rehabilitation of a 20-year-old female patient having oligodontia associated with ectodermal dysplasia
and severe skeletal class III malocclusion with the chief complaint of unpleasant esthetics and poor masticatory function. She
had multiple missing teeth and a malformed appearance of the remaining teeth with deranged occlusion. The patient was
rehabilitated with a combination of fixed and removeable prosthodontics thereby evidently enhancing the esthetic and functional
outcome.
