Osseointegrated Implants in the Oral Rehabilitation of a Patient with Cleft Lip and Palate and Ectodermal Dysplasia: A Case Report

Maria Lúcia Rubo de Rezende, DDS, PhD/Flávio Monteiro Amado, DDS, MS

PMID: 15623068

Hereditary ectodermal dysplasia is an inherited disorder characterized by aplasia or dysplasia of ectodermal tissues, such as hair, nails, teeth, and skin, that occurs in approximately 1 in every 100,000 live births. Dental abnormalities and abnormal facial appearance are of major concern in childhood and adolescence, since they can restrict the individual socially and affect his or her self-confidence. Oral rehabilitation in the early stages of the patient’s life may provide functional and esthetic restoration as well as safeguard psychologic health. This report presents the clinical procedures involved in the rehabilitation of a 10-year-old female patient with complete bilateral cleft lip and palate and ectodermal dysplasia.
